Stephane Corlosquet had a good idea on the webid mailing list which is summarised as

MUST support both for consumers, deprecate RDF/XML for publishers, and remove the example
RDF/XML from the spec.

The reason we are asking the wider community is that we want WebID to be an entry point
for people from social networks into the LinkedData community. So even though all our tools
can support every format, if we put that into the spec there is much too high a risk of
cognitive dissonance.

There is an extra very good reason for putting Turtle up there, and that is that
we have a simple SPARQL example in the spec
and so that makes understanding for newbies easier.
