Hi,

Did we mentionned directory services to store RDF?
In fact, directory services like for instance, LDAP are a perfect match with
RDF.
a) they are hierarchical (useful but not necessary for RDF)
b) they are frame based (very useful and necessary for RDF)
c) they support frame typing (very useful for RDF and a plus because we have
here the occasion to apply concretely RDF shemas)
d) they already or will in a very near future contain the enterprise meta
data for devices, users, organization units, etc...
e) they are or will be part of operating systems (Solaris, Win2000, Linux,
etc...)

So, in my own opinion, directory services like for instance LDAP servers are
a very good match for storing RDF. Going further on this, don't you think
that RDF is a perfect candidate for directory data serialization.

Cheers
Didier PH Martin
