It's a game changer because its given the entire Linked Data and 
Semantic Web aspirations a major boost. Decouple flaws associated with 
one syntax rules them all and you'll see that structured data is a 
critical beachhead for InterWeb scale Linked Data. Once you have Linked 
Data all over the Web the foundation is in place for smart agents (that 
really put OWL to use) via a Web of Semantically Linked Data. We get 
there one step at a time, ever structured data contribution should be 
celebrated, especially when it comes from industry behemoths.

A Syntax war is an utter waste of time.
