Nope that's RSS. I know, it's very weird, but that's how it goes...

However, it uses RDF which explains part of the confusion (all formats which
use RDF generally have a rdf:RDF element at the top). Generally, you can
tell the format by looking at the value of the xmlns attribute. For example,
RSS 1.0 looks like this:

    xmlns="http://purl.org/rss/1.0/"

I don't know why the 0.9 namespace isn't as clear.
