  • First off, XML isn't the only possible serialization of RDF. Second, and more importantly, I think it's reasonable for CPAN metadata to be stored/provided as YAML... so long as it can be unambigiously mapped to RDF for those applications that need/want it.
    • I would argue that the world that uses XML/RDF is larger than the world that uses YAML. I have no statistics to back this up, it is just a gut feel. Safety in numbers is not really a good argument, but I guess the main thing that the data is *available* (thanks Acme) than what format it is in.
