It would be interesting, but not mandatory IMHO. If humans connect to
REST APIs they would be able to use it.

If clients (machines) would connect without a clue of the content-types
allowed in OSLC, they would get something eventually (semantic web

But I think it should be sufficient to require as part of the standard's
required behaviours that servers support RDF+XML or JSON (or ATOM)
without adding other constraints.

My 2 cents,
