The time is now!  The W3C has already recommended RDF, I don't
understand what additional signal your waiting for.  These things are
not decided by anyone (even Tim Berners-Lee)  saying anything at all. 
They are decided by somebody making a tool that works well and becomes
widely used.  I proposed one such tool in [1]  and another in [2] and
am chugging away on a similar tool dubbed MyMemory which will
read/write/remember RDF and index your documents.  If anyone wants to
collaborate on developing this, please send me a private email.
