I read the history and markup-pedantry and skipped the challenge :)

I agree that the "RDF-the-idea a whole lot better than RDF the actual 
technology." And your sample syntax is a whole lot better than RDF's 
syntax. But I have trouble believing that RDF will go anywhere as long 
as it depends on URIs like:

    http://www.example.com/terms/editor

Let's face it. I want to write about Bob, Bob's house, the address of 
Bob's house, and the color of Bob's house, not:

    http://www.example.com/terms/person
    http://www.example.com/terms/name
    http://www.example.com/terms/house
    http://www.example.com/terms/owner
    http://www.example.com/terms/address
    http://www.example.com/terms/color
    ...
