] d) struggle to interoperate, even behind the web interface

I think this point is quite important. In principle I agree with Pat
that RDF is a wire format and data model and systems can internally do
what they like. Except that most real systems will actually be made up
of pieces from different vendors and what would normally be
unconstrained internal communication ends up in practice following the
public protocol because the vendors are, rightly, concerned about
interoperability. So in practice the constraints in the spec leak into
the private sphere.
