Yep, non RDF tools that deal with that wrongly are going to get an awful
lot wrong, so aren't likely to be around too long, all the genuine RDF
tools will deal with it fine, so there should be no problem.

I think it would be nice though if you could get the serialiser make it
look as "normal" as possible simply for debugging purposes, but as an RDF
application it should make no difference.

All of the main foaf consumers I know of would have no problem, they all
use real parsers.
