There is an issue here that for whatever reasons simply keeps on getting 
lost. The question is simple: what are the unique characteristics of 
RDF? What does RDF do uniquely?

I actually believe RDF does have unique characteristics, but I am 
curious to see if mine are in alignment with views of others.

I really don't want RDF to become something that's based on a leap of 
faith, we can do much better than that :-)
