And I am saying to you, repeatedly: RDF == EAV + URIs + semantics for 
typed literals and language tags + 118n.

You can express and serialize an eav/spo graph today using HTML + 
Microdata.

You are forcing me to be *deliberately* patronizing. I don't understand

introduce unnecessary politics into an effort that should be
