That may a major news. rnews is an RDF vocabulary to describe news item, plus a spec on how it would be deployed in RDFa (originally proposed by the New York Times). If this becomes an IPTC standard, this means that all major newspapers may use it to annotate their news items. So lots of potentials there...
