Congratulations on JRDF, this looks like a nice and concise API to me.
I like the idea of a modular API which can be tailored to suit the
project at hand: Concise for small ones, feature rich for large ones.

I am missing one method in the current design of NodeFactory tough:

Literal createLiteral(String lexicalValue, java.net.URI datatype);

- because I do not want to think about the language of my xsd:integer 5.

Also, do you plan to include anything like contexts/formulae in JRDF?
I am aware that this is still a heavily discussed subject, but many people
consider it an important (or at least interesting) feature. Some APIs
and projects already support contexts/formulae on an experimental basis,
for example Redland (http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/).
