Just a thought - it should be possible/might be interesting to use
benchmarks from other database/query systems, such as RDBMS (maybe
factorised through relational algebra), ODBMS & XML DBs. The
inferencing/retrieval for these kinds of systems is relatively specialised,
and hence implementations will be optimised with particular kinds of task in
mind, so the benchmark results from e.g. Postgresql could act as a kind of
best-case marker.

I bet there's also quite a mass of material around from systems like Prolog
implementations.

Cheers,
Danny.
