Hi Christian,
I presume you are familiar with SolrRDF - http://goo.gl/kjLFHM?

Does it mean that it has to query a SPRQL endpoint with no intermediaries, in real-time? In fact, this approach is not the best in my opinion...one probably needs to materialize data in some other more facets-friedly system (e.g. solr, elastic search) to gain good performances (I might be wrong but this is what my - limited - experience told me). Then I started asking me...if you put a SPARQL connector, then every existing faceted browser can be a RDF data faceted browser...
