RIF (which became a W3C Recommendation last week) is N3, mutated (in
some good ways and some bad ways, I suppose) by the community consensus
process.   RIF is simultaneously the heir to N3 and a standard business
rules format.

RIF's central syntax is XML-based, but there's room for a presentation
syntax that looks like N3.   RIF includes triples which can have
literals as subject, of course.  (In RIF, these triples are called
"frames".   Well, sets of triples with a shared subject are called
frames, technically.    But they are defined by the spec to be an
extension of RDF triples.)
