May I suggest that API 1 (textual) itself be RDF-based. In fact I think it's
possible to represent both queries and manipulations of some RDF
"repository" in RDF.

There are 2 kinds of APIs.

(a) An text based API for one machine to ask another
for information about a particular object (e.g., machine
A asks machine B for all the contact related information
for Dan Brickley).

(c) A programatic API for a program to traverse/query
an RDF graph.
