My comments, posted to the list:

RDF is unpopular because it is generally misunderstood. This problem 
arises (primarily) from how RDF has been presented to the market in general.
To understand RDF you have first understand what Data actually is [1], 
once you cross that hurdle two things [2[3] ]will become obvious:

1. RDF is extremely useful in regards to all issues relating to Data
2. RDF has been poorly promoted.

[3] http://bit.ly/1cqm7Hs -- RDF Relation (RDF should really stand for: 
Relations Description Framework) .
