The Metadata people, or at least the Dublin Core community, are looking to
use RDF to store resource discovery metadata.  The Dublin Core community
found that HTML 3.2 could not be used to store complex metadata
relationships.

I think the web collections community (who would like to define
relationships for groups of web resource) are also likely to use RDF.
