fyi: TimBL has just updated 
http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html to now read:

3- 'When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the 
standards (RDF*, SPARQL)'

.. 'The basic format here for RDF/XML, with its popular alternative 
serialization N3 (or Turtle).'

To clarify that N3's good for Linked Data
