I personally don't find RDF at all complex.
The specification is clear and well written, and there isn't all that
much syntax needed.  I didn't find the schema document particularly
complex either, although you have to be willing to read specs.
There did seem to be an error --an RDF example uses s.Creator, where
s is the rdf schema spec. Should be dc.Creator I think.

Luckily there are quite a few people using RDF now, so there is
implementation experience as well as large amounts of actual data.
