I think emphasising RDFa examples would at least accomplish the

* Show something that they are perhaps more familiar with i.e., (X)HTML
and let them follow up on RDF if they need to.

* It will show that machine readable or RDF is not all about RDF/XML.
Hence, it will tone down that misconception, and let the developers go
ahead with their choice of serialization.

* And obviously because it is both machine and human readable (in a
sense that the data is visible on a Web page).

Using turtle/n3 in parts would give them other exit points and not
misinterpret WebID as MUST be in RDFa.
