[tdwg-tag] RDF N3

I like the sound of the 'compactness' of the format, but I worry that there is a lack of tools that support the format (ie browsers, mainly). It is quite nice to naturally navigate the rdf world with a standard browser.  But for transfer standards, I suppose this wouldn't matter.

Let's make N3 be the recommended RDF representation. It is way more
compact and human readable than RDF/XML.  We could even specify a
normative conversion tool if necessary.
