RDF and JSON aren't important. What's important is structured content 
that's available in a variety of formats via explicit or implicit 
content negotiation.

<link/> and "Link:" provide "deceptively simple" solutions to these 
never ending problems with content formats. The letters "R-D-F", 
"J-S-O-N" etc.. always take us to distracting places where format 
arguments distort what's already possible, based on existing standards.
