PUT/GET are a data-access architecture for documents, period.  RDF is
not a document data model; it's a graph data model.  If you want to shim
a document data model on top of your graph storage, then fine -- but you
better figure out how to interact with your graph storage first.  Until
you have a consistent way of accessing your graph data model, you're
going to have a post-babel chaos.
