Depends how you want to count, perhaps. There are pushing 2 million 
RDF files served from LiveJournal as application/rdf+xml, for example.
(eg. http://www.livejournal.com/users/danbri/data/foaf). Similarly from 
TypePad eg  http://foaf.typepad.com/foaf.rdf -- in general when 
providers make FOAF profile documents available, they use the right 
type. With RSS I think the situation is more complex, and
application/rss+xml or somesuch might be common.

Stats from a recent RDF crawler might be interesting; Google doesn't 
follow RDF-to-RDF rdfs:seeAlso references...
