I think that Wraf ( http://www.ucn.nu/wraf/ ) are in many ways
diffrent from other RDF implementations.  Interoperability are
importent, and that require a common view on how to model a lot of
things.  There should be common concepts.  

But what would be the point with identical APIs?  Wraf is not a
generic RDF library.  It's aimed at a very specific implementation
style.
