One of the few ways I have been able to "sell" investment in RDF at scale to folks in the cultural heritage sector is that it offers a fairly straightforward and uniform approach to i18n. I don't have to argue that it's perfect... just that it is easy to understand, it can be implemented without a lot of overhead, and (crucially) it allows people to share translation work easily.
