I think that would be a short term gain (people using something labeled
"linked data" and people using URIs to identify things), but a long term
loss, because (by having different formats for data), still no
interoperability.

I wouldn't be terribly opposed to reversing starts 4 and 5, so you do
triples-with-shared-URIs first, then RDF second, but it seems to me that
to get interoperability, you need to actually have standards for the
bits on the wire....    Okay, that came out wrong, because I know you
know this...    What format are you proposing for serializing these
triples?
