If everyone thinks that is a worthwhile feature I wouldn't mind helping 
to implement it.

If I do I would like a couple pointers since here is what I would propose:

Change rdf.js so that the init can take an optional username and password

Set it up so that if username and password are passed in it uses 
XmlHttpRequest to get the RDF as a stream of text that can be passed to 
nsIRDFXMLParser to get a datasource out of the whole deal.

Then continue as normal...

Is that the right plan of attack?
