You can't "easily" embed RDF/XML into XHTML, you can use RDF/A or GRDDL,
but that's different. You can apply the same conversion argument just as
well the other way round. I have some PHP scripts that conneg LV2 turtle
files into HTML (still very primitive) or RDF/XML as required, it's not
exactly hard.
