of course you can map anything to anything, but that's not all that
relevant here. and yes, we're defining RDF, nobody every questioned that.
but we're *also* defining a service (see charter), and that means that we
are designing just this: the service surface where client and server
interact. we specify the concepts we want to handle, and the ways in which
they can be interacted with. and that's all we do. specifically, we're not
making any assumptions about how client or server are doing their jobs
behind the service surface. unless we give up on the REST part and assume
a homogeneous RDF world and just define vocabularies and no interaction
protocol, there's no way around this.

the problems that need to be addressed and solved for building some
container/member managing service are always the same, irrespective of
your preference of syntax, and metamodel behind it. we can learn from
atompub, and we'll end up specifying something close to it in the end, so
maybe it's worth taking a look.
