I've done some of this on internal projects, only generating a subset
of the RDF/XML syntax, but I haven't covered all cases. And it wouldn't
have to be an official syntax, but only something that can be used
internally for non-RDF (model-wise) applications.

In any case, this should be in RDF Core, not FoaF specific, but I'm
wondering if we could come up with a subset of the syntax productions
that would cover everything in the model?

Heh heh, well almost, it's only subsetting, not a different approach.
