Arguable, RDF is quite nuanced and constrained, compared to something
broader stroke like N3, the ontologies are all over the place, misused,
incomplete (even base ones like rdfs and owl), others miss the mark (RIF),
mismodelled (verifiable claims, many others), archaic (most), or just
aren't GETable (like the most widely deployed -

It evolved with baggage and constraints, has fundamental issues (hr-14, no
literal subjects, bnode mess, skolemization, no graph literals). Most uses
require conneg, the list goes on. Even json-ld is quite the behemoth
compared to how it could have been.

I know there's a lot vested in it, but it's far from what it could be.
