N3 is *not* a serialization of RDF. It has a quantifer, implication, 
and rules of inference, all of which make its (vague) semantics 
different to those in the RDF model theory. It's closer to DAML or 
KIF than RDF. Tho' I'm quite sure you know this.

No argument there.

I believe N-triples is in fact a serialization of RDF.
