One answer is that RDF tools are more appropriate anyhow. There are RDF 
query languages and RDF-ish ways to map between vocabularies etc.

A second answer is yes, the CSS/RDF could probably be represented as an 
XML infoset (or even be fully transformed to XML) if you really wanted 
that. In fact, the resulting infoset would probably be more regular and 
thus easier to work with than the XML/RDF infoset because it wouldn't be 
as hacky.
