I looked at the file ~/.gnome/epiphany/bookmarks.xml, which certainly is
not RDF. I executed epiphany a long time ago and that file must be from
an old version. I have executed it again and now I see a bookmarks.rdf
file which looks a lot better. Sorry for spreading FUD against Epiphany.
Anyway, what I wanted to say in my mail was actually that Marco was
right, the easy part is agreeing about a file format.
