Excuse a lurker's naivete, but I've been under the impression that the 
whole point of this entire RDF/triples exercise is to deal with a MUCH
LARGER set of data than is envisioned in this thread, i.e. the entire 
Semantic Web taken as one big database.

The proprietary ("enterprise" is the usual buzzword) considerations are 
of much less concern to humanity since what's needed is some more 
universal everyone/everything/everywhere/always connected sort of thing.

Finding out how many tires are in stock in Akron is an extremely small 
part of the overall point - am I missing something?

Love.
