In KnoBot [1] I've implemented Trix support to allow transformation with 
XSLT, later I've also implemented support for Morten Frederiksens R3X 
format [2] a subset of RDF/XML with also allows XSLT transformation. I 
found the later easier to write stylesheets for and more readable for 
resource-oriented humans, additionally it has the advantage to be 
understood by standard RDF/XML processors.
