I forgot a very important one:

  7. An RDFX instance may be fully validated by an XML validator
     and authored in an validating XML editor.

also, per some recent tweaks following from some comments
by Tom Passin,

  8. An RDFX serialization is an attribute-only serialization
     with the single exception of XML literal content, and
     thus may be used embedded in XML instances with no
     concerns about the display of non-XML content yet with
     the beneficial side effect of the display of XML literal
     data content.

Cheers,

Patrick
