There's another paper linked at his site that documents some of his
work with the SIMILE project:

Their conclusion is that RDF and XML are complementary technologies
(though they're seeing XML as a source for RDF, via XSLT).

Anyone that wants to play with an application of this (from SIMILE)
should install the Piggy Bank 2 Firefox plug-in.  They use a
combination of XSLT and Javascript to massage web data into RDF, and
then from there to do some magic with it.
