This wins with no question, I think. And I think
the buzzword should be not RDF, but RDDL
( not the current version, sorry ;-( ).
BTW, the funny thing is that we already
have 'something' in this domain. When
IE / Netscape ecounter some 'unknown tag'
they download a plugin.
In my oppinion, this architecture, if generalized
and put on steroinds is the way to go and
earlier or later it will happen anyway.

Sure, some sertification of 'plugins' is implied. I'd
prefer something other, than Verisign. Well, one
can leverage PGP pretty fast ...
