One thing that some people want to be able to do is take LD and put it
into one of the mongo/couch/riak type databases - I'm not sure it has
been mentioned here but it is definitely something that comes up
relatively often in my conversations with people. If we get the spec
right, it will be possible to do this and at the same time have
an easy compatibility with RDF for interchanging data amongst these
databases.
