Tim, RDF IG,

the new release of the updated RDF API [2] includes a parser that is
based on a simplified RDF syntax. The parser goes beyond [3,4] in that
it is capable of processing arbitrary XML files and generating an RDF
interpretation for them. A slight modification of DTDs allows creating
fairly useful RDF models without changing the original XML data.

The parser makes no distinction between XML-only and RDF-only syntax any
more.

[1] is a good starting point.

I'm looking forward to hearing your comments. 

Best,
Sergey
