Yahoo opening up search platform to developers and semantic web

Yahoo declares that they will be opening up its open search platform very soon to third party developers to build "Enhanced Results applications".
Also, Yahoo search will support semantic web standards like RDF and microformats.
Now, Open search API won't be just a way to customize presentation of their search results, and further support to semantic web standards would be the exact incentive for the websites to use those.
