Hi Albert,

If I may be critical:

> No more hard-coded queries in your Linked Data consuming applications!

Why not?

Isn't the whole point of the Semantic Web that clients should know what they want,
instead of servers needing to know what clients want?

Or to say it differently: the more specific an API,
the less clients that are able to use it?

Best,

Ruben
