To be honest, I don't understand what you mean by “generic data storage providers which have some level of understanding of the data being used”. To have some understanding, they need to be non-generic, no?

I don't understand how providing CRUD for server-side applications that expose RDF inhibits the other thing.

I heard you say that “using up” the POST method would prevent other uses of POST on the same resource. That's a fair point, and I do agree that LDP should facilitate moving any “POST endpoints” off the managed resource to a separate LDP-specific resource. It already does that, to some extent, because the “container resource” and the “subject resource” don't have to be the same.
