To help the general public better understand RDF, how about renaming the
long form to something like one of the following:

  RDF: Reusable Data Framework
  RDF: Reusable Data Format

(Or maybe someone else will come up with a better one.)

If this is done, I suggest *also* retaining the existing "Resource
Description Framework" name in the title to avoid confusion, such as:

  RDF: Reusable Data Framework (a/k/a Resource Description Framework)

With RDF 1.1, this might be a good opportunity for such a renaming.
