It isn't an assumption. More like a fact, since LDP is supposed to be 
based on RDF -- an entity relationship model endowed with explicit 
entity relationship semantics, expressible as an entity relationship 
graph? This can all happen on :

1. paper
2. on a computer --  using a variety of markup syntaxes
3. on a local area network using hyperlinks that resolve locally -- ditto
4. on a wide area network (e.g. Web or Internet) where hyperlinks are 
either HTTP URIs or de-referencable URIs (i.e., that might not be http: 
scheme based) -- ditto.
