FWIW, earlier this year I implemented a simple Hypermedia maze game:
http://amundsen.com/examples/mazes/2d/

The was done as part of an exercise to implement "bots" that can read
hypermedia and successfully navigate a 2D "perfect" maze.

The current version supports a ;simple hypermedia XML format
(application/xml) and an XHTML format. If you view these links /w a
browser, you'll get a very basic UI.

I'd be most interested in successfully implementing this same 2D maze
using RDF (any flavor including RDFa, n3, etc.).

The code is implemented in C# and I'm happy to share it for anyone
interested, too. I don't have any meaning docs at this point, but
would be happy to spend the time to make it more accessible to anyone
who wishes to implement clients against this server.
