I prophecy that RDF will be a de facto standard as popular as pure XML. I prophecy that SPARQL will be used a lot. I prophecy that network management will use some kind of ontology-based representation of the devices and their capabilities. I prophecy that agents will use inference over the network data to heal network deficiencies. I don't believe in mobile agents, but once in a while I think of scenarios in networking where 'mobile', scripted agents roam the network for various functions, like healing and diagnostics. Or for dynamic functions, like dynamically loading drivers, etc.
