Wow, I time-slice onto something(s actually) else for a couple days and we 
have real discussions going on!

1: Dumb question, for Eric P I think.  If one is willing to assume an 
optimized serializer in order to move the proposed ldp:membershipRule "up 
front", what does the extra level of indirection and the anon  bnode 
"trick" really give you beyond moving the 3-4 predicates that the anon 
bnode would otherwise contain up front?   The mental chasm for me is 
accepting the notion of an optimized serializer more than whether it's 
moving a clump of form X vs form Y to a privileged spot. 

2: To ErikW's comment, maybe it's fine for prototyping but I'm worried 
about lifecycle dev costs in product development, and once we create that 
Thing we own its care & feeding forever.  I would "strongly discourage" my 
own devs from taking a course like that especially in the general case.

3: Presenting the option for server implementations seems perfectly 
appropriate in a companion document; one of the existing ones like BP&G, 
or another.  As long as it meets the "clients can't depend on it" criteria 
others laid out, it's a fair investment decision to give server 
implementers.  I have zero sympathy for it in the mainline spec, where as 
ErikW pointed out it would add nothing normative; I think it would be a 
distraction, if anything.

Best Regards, John
