Still not getting you :)

Maybe we should not promote SPARQL as data dump access method, but we
should still promote it as a query language. Both are important access
methods.

Instead of discouraging developers from using SPARQL endpoints, data
provoders should set up the missing dumps (or the way around). That way
data can be acessed as queries *and* as dumps, depending on the use case.
