It is often helpful to fully quote, so --

   3. When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, 
      using the standards (RDF*, SPARQL)

I had some explicit conversation with TimBL about this "RDF*" 
(albeit some years ago).

At the time of writing, he meant the star as the wildcard, to 
encompass all the RDF standards and serializations.

I don't know whether he has reconsidered the meaning since then.

Be seeing you,
