Note that those data dumps are *not* well-formed XML; there are various glitches in the data. I hacked together a Python script that churns through the 300Mb of data and outputs a corrected version that xmlwf reports as being well-formed XML; look for xmlfix.py at http://starship.python.net/crew/amk/zope/ODP.html
It would be nice if the data was available in smaller chunks. I'm working on a ODP viewer for Zope, and have a shell-like tool for editing the data; a slide about it is at http://starship.python.net/crew/amk/zope/odp-slides/sld015.htm . This tool would let you read in the full database, delete chunks, eventually add new material, and then output RDF for your modified version. Slapping an XML-RPC interface on top of it should be relatively easy; I hadn't thought of that.
All of this stuff is still unfinished and unreleased.
