There’s no question that’s well-supported and common, just whether WebID Verification Agents should be required to understand it.

(I agree with the thread consensus, btw — Turtle as a MUST for consumers is fine — pretty much anything supporting RDFa *and* RDF/XML will already support Turtle. As for whether RDF/XML is deprecated for publishers or not. I don’t think it's necessary to be that explicit — I think “you can produce it in any of these formats, and here’s how” and letting the “market” decide is fine)
