I use it because - as I've said - I think it is the most interesting
feature of RDF.

I'd argue that the model is OK, it's the implementation that is tricky.
It's not impossible to implement, but will be a lot easier once XLink is
built into parsers, since then you could simply do a transform of RDF
into a great bundle of XLinks that pull in class and property
definitions, ranges, values and so on.
