Hello all,

in 2010 Antonio Garrote presented a paper which is directly relevant
to the design of read-write Linked Data Platform:
"A Formal Definition of RESTful Semantic Web Services"
http://antoniogarrote.github.com/clj-plaza/assets/WSREST2010paper.pdf

There is also a more readable specification of "RESTful semantic
resources" and their implementation based on Antonio's Plaza library:
http://antoniogarrote.github.com/clj-plaza/documentation/2010/04/30/rest.html
http://antoniogarrote.github.com/clj-plaza/

Graphity implements very similar functionality using SPARQL service,
URI and SPARQL (SPIN) templates. Draft specification of its Linked
Data server and server processor can be found here:
https://github.com/Graphity/graphity-ldp/wiki/Linked-Data-server-specification

These Linked Data models described in are most likely not the final,
and there is probably other relevant research and/or implementations
(please add if you know).
What they make pretty obvious is that there are underlying formal
models of a RESTful LDP.

The question is, to what extent has the WG evaluated this kind of
research and implementations? If it has not, why not, and is it
planning to?
