It's clearly not going to be replaced any time soon ...
I don't think we are disagreeing here.

RDF/XML does have known significant weaknesses and it is important to be
beginning to address those - and the TriX paper starts from the premise that
that cannot be done without starting over.

It is also important to appreciate the strengths of RDF/XML, which is one of
the reasons I think it is important to show that you can do RDF/XML in TriX.
