Indeed, there's also an implementation (or a couple) of the RDF 
Interfaces spec.

FWIW I'd still be very interested in:

a) updating the RDF Interfaces specification to match the new RDF specs

b) determining if there are any issues with the RDF Interfaces spec 
following implementation feedback (there's some in the archive from people)

c) working on the other two APIs

I'd been waiting to see mention or focus move back to them in the RDF WA 
WG over the past few months, but figured the only concern was keep 
working on RDFa 1.1 and Lite, so was biding my time - and also slightly 
limited as to what can change on the RDF Interfaces spec, since most 
changes are alignment with the next RDF versions.

Best,

Nathan
