AW: Requirements for a possible "RDF 2.0"

Without having the time to read through the MASSIVE amount of replies:

I would love to simplify RDF/XML and have been documenting that for years here:

Betreff: Requirements for a possible "RDF 2.0"

Without volunteering myself to be such a contact, I have (as both a
users of many RDF implementations and a W3C chair and I suppose a
self-declared semantic web expert) been the recipient of a lot of
complaints and suggestions regarding the design and implementation of
RDF, and at ISWC a few months ago I suggested to Ivan that we start
discussing starting a working group that would investigate a next
version of RDF.

This discussion is happening in several places already, and we thought
this was the best place to house that discussion for now.

A workshop on this subject is also in the planning, more news on that in
a week or two.

I suppose we don't really need to discuss whether we should investigate
an "RDF 2.0", but rather what kinds of requirements various RDF users
have that they would like to be considered (I'd like this thread to be
less "+1" and "-1" messages, and more "I'd like to see RDF support x...")
