Re: RDF 2 Wishlist: Turtle Syntax

I think RDF-JSON would be a good thing to get into a W3C recommendation:

Not only is JSON nicer to deal with than XML, it's also a much lower
impedance mismatch with many of the "schema-less" document-oriented stores
that are becoming popular and tend to serialize documents in JSON or
JSON-like formats (e.g. CouchDB and MongoDB).
