Hi Ivan,

Same here. I should have suggested this before, since this is actually
how my RDFa library is implemented.

I think it's fair enough to be concerned.

Perhaps one way to come at this would be to have different scenarios
or 'profiles' that an implementation can choose to conform to? At
least that way we can ensure that all implementations of a certain
type expose the same interfaces. (E.g., browser implementations might
all adopt 'profile x', which requires a default store, and that
parsing has already been completed on document load, etc.)
