app1 adds (#A, #B, "2")
app2 adds (#A, #B, "2")
app1 dels (#A, #B, "2")
app2 queries for (#A, #B) values and should get "2".

Also, while a votes system could be implemented with an rdf container
(thereby assigning unique ordinals to each vote), I don't beleive the
language dictates, that.

Take this with a grain of salt, didn't thing about it long.
