Doing so ultimately introduces adoption inertia and conceptual confusion via conflation of core concepts and implementation details.

The spec does not mandate SPARQL. I don't see it.

"There are number of different ways to check that the public key given in the X.509 certificate against the one provided by the WebID Profile, but the simplest way to explain it is to say that they all have to be equivalent to the following SPARQL queries."

http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/spec/#verifying-the-webid-is-identified-by-that-public-key

I would like a language where I can point to the pattern in terms of SPARQL, as that is easy to understand .

Please come up with better language.
