This seem mixed up.

1/ GSP does not involve SPARQL queries; it only involves HTTP.
2/ Who is trying to "tunnel SPARQL"?  (I'm not)
3/ LDP is RDF - surely all clients are "RDF-centric"?
4/ "on top of an SQL or XML database back-end" is an implementation 
issue, not to do with external service.  I'm imaging a filesystem 

I think LDP ought to stay well clear of the indirect naming in GSP - it 
just isn't relevant.
