Safari.oreilly.com needs RDF

When you remove a book from your shelf in Safari, you are asked for confirmation in a popup. The popup contains this comment (elided here):

this isn't surprising. Jon Udell had a lot to do with Safari, and his (incredibly, out of print) book talked a lot about roundtripping contextual information between clients and servers.

On the other hand, if this isn't a opportunity to use RDF triples, I don't know what is.
