My guess is that RDF/XML is 'good enough' for machine oriented
serialization, and it's supported by all the implementations. 

It's really the human-oriented use of RDF/XML that causes problems
(e.g. writing by hand, mapping triples in your head, aesthetics), and
none of the other XML serialization syntaxes are really aimed at
solving this problem.

Cheers,

Phil
