Does not look very RDFish to me...
The only general purpose RDF-into-DB schema I can imagine is a
Subject/Predicate/Object table...

Ok, some people will need more "natural" views of the data, but then you
could use Views, rather than Tables, like the one above.

And may be some additionnal columns may be useful, like a StatementID of
RDFSource column, when the DB gathers statements from different
sources...
