Not much AFAICT.

The Sindice perspective: For well-known formats such as microformats  
or RDFa, we'd rather build a detector and manage the parsing on our  
side, which is easy to do and gives access to the vast amount of  
content that doesn't have a GRDDL declaration.

In theory, GRDDL should allow Sindice to ingest RDF from sites that  
publish custom app-specific XML. In practice, there are no data  
producers that have a GRDDL transform and aren't publishing in a  
“normal” RDF format as well.
