Do you mean structured data without being particularly interested in 
Linked Data specifics or subjective peculiarities?

Do you mean Web developers that see RDF/XML as too complex and don't 
necessarily *sense* or buy into the notion of an RDF data model distinct 
from a collection of expression syntaxes and data representation formats?

There's nothing complex about a triple or quad modulo the kind of 
syntactic obfuscation demonstrated with aplomb by RDF/XML.
