Very intersting.

I find the usage of RDF for object method and property representation
particularly intriguing. It can lead to the creation of an object model
with replaceable implementations of web services and property accessors.

I rambled a bit about this
in http://www.egroups.com/message/decentralization/237.

The key point there is that an object model defined in RDF is extensible, and
also queryable. 
So Newer methods, or services can be added by web sites
to user's existing objects..and metadata can be combined across applications.

Caching stored metadata obtained from the multiple sources will be needed
to have efficiency. Any thoughts on whether a generic RDF db like RDFDB or
some sort of object database which captures the model at a coarser granularity
than individual triples  is favorable?
