How about the use of Atom? I think RDF may need a bit of a
spring-cleaning - and lots of people are using things like Google's
gData, Microsoft's oData, and  Activity Streams in the Social Web to
ship data on the Web, not RDF. Each of these RDF alternatives is based
on Atom. So maybe a Atom-based syntax for RDF would be useful? People
seem to think it's a bit simpler than RDF/XML.
