Just to say, my experience working with web developers
(of which I am not one) seems to be in the A3 or possibly
A4 camp.

However something that appears missing and may want to
be more explicitly stated is that many of the more 
interesting things that people want to do involve not
only taking some RDF and exposing it in a convenient
JSON way for ultimate display to users but actually 
*writing* data. So composing some bit of JSON and sending
it in an HTTP PUT or POST and expecting this to result
in new RDF statements being created or deleted.

For the A3 camp, that want to have no concept at all
of RDF this is hard. I can't see how it can be done in
any way other than custom crafted server code that takes
the JSON and makes appropriate RDF out of it in an
application-specific way.
