Except that not all users will be able to switch to such an 
implementation. I believe you have in mind the common but use case where a 
generic/vanilla rdf datastore is used. In other cases such as those I know 
of where RDF is used as a thin layer on top of legacy software SPARQL 
support isn't an option and switching implementation isn't either.
