Looking through the metamodel proposals┬╣, it seems that a lot of the
complexity comes from the fact that triple constraints, inverse triple
constraints, and filter constraints are different beasts. What are the
use cases that motivate filters?

The XML Schema WG provided only one way, a processing instruction, to
associate XML elements with types in a schema. Years later, WSDL added
another, associating parts of the REST I/O for some endpoint with
types in some schema. The processing instruction seems analogous to
the sh:classShape property connecting instances of some class to a
given shape. The WSDL analog would fit naturally in some LDP doc.
