Which forms do you propose?

How about implementing parsers; do you suggest it is ok to restrict
parsers to only certain forms of RDF/XML? Currently implementing an RDF
parser is not a small undertaking; with TriX it would be a breeze.

Also, as a human reading RDF/XML you have to understand all the quirks
of the syntax to understand what is going on.
