Piggy Bank uses Informa 0.6.0 to parse all RSS feeds, whether or not
they are RDF/XML. Perhaps Informa skips over non-RSS stuff like those
prism: predicates.

Piggy Bank also invokes applicable scrapers and then throw all results
together into the same RDF model. So, the results we both got were
expected, although not desirable. Could you log a bug in our issue
tracking system about this? Thanks!
