We're defining LDP, a concrete specification, with a formal process
and a group of people. So with all respect to TimBL, I don't care
about the meme you're talking about.

You guys keep talking about description/presentation. That's not the
question as we have already all agreed on using RDF to expose the LDP
model. The question is to know what HTTP interactions are allowed with
RDF resources found in a text/turtle document.

You act as if RDF was equivalent to a media type when it comes to HTTP
interactions (again, not just the trivial ones like GET). But RDF is
just a data model. It does not define a REST API.
