Hi Jonathan,

How would you suggest we deal with "implied triples", such as those
related to datatypes. For example, there may be a vast number of triples
for relations such as 'before' and 'after' in applications such as
calendar / scheduling systems. Can we use XQuery-based tools to answer
this kind of question about RDF datasets?

(Not a criticism; genuine curiosity/ignorance!)
