We have not specified any format (I think). All formats transform to RDF, so if 
the browser people really prefer non rdf XML, we can work for them to give them
an XML representation of the data.  That is what GRDDL is for.

On the other hand I don't think things are that bad with rdf. 10 years is a long
time, and the folks ten years ago in the browser world were just a bit too far
ahead of the curve. Now it would be easy for them to take virtuoso and pop it in the
browser. But  we are not here arguing for that here.
