As an aside, do you think that if the W3C had (or would) put it's
stamp on TriX, even just as a note with examples, it would (have)
gained more uptake?

There was the clunky 1998/99ish RDF/XML stuff which had eyeballs from
xml-dev on it, but until relatively recently it seemed like the XML
world and the RDF world were completely different planets. Now with
the likes of Jeni & Bob DuCharme jumping on board the RDF raft it
seems there is real crossover. (Not to mention the OpenLink one store,
many views approach).
