I'm not really following your argument here - maybe I'm missing some
detail. RDF can be serialized to XML (and in fact your example is
precisely such a serialization), so if your AJAX code needs XML as
invoke XSLTs on an XML source and render the resulting HTML (if that's
what you need), and finally, there are also RDF->JSON converters. So
I'm not sure where you see the bottleneck or hurdle.
