As far as having a standard common API for RDF in general, we already
do: Jena, Sesame and Redland already all provide SPARQL. Once SPARQL
Update is more standardised, that API will become read-write.

The RDFa DOM API is something different though, distinguishing itself
from existing RDF APIs by taking advantage of RDFa's embeddedness in
host languages, integrating with the existing API of the host language
(i.e. the HTML/XML DOM).
