This is just some feedback about Sergey Melniks RDF-API

Today we are working with what we call 'R objects'.
R objects are representatives of resources:
  they contain an URL which refers to the resource
  they behave like the resource (HTTP POST performs JAVA reflection)
  they are structured like the resource (HTTP GET gives an XML serialization)
This last one is actually an external representation.
Today it is something like an XHTML form, but thanks to Sergey Melnik's
StrawmanToMS10 it has a meaningfull RDF model
according to http://www-db.stanford.edu/~melnik/rdf/api.html
On top of these R wrappers one could build GINF mediators
according to http://www-diglib.stanford.edu/diglib/ginf/
So we expect to see more cool things in these org.w3c.rdf... packages!!!
