Doesn't this imply that entailment is a defining characteristic of RDF  
i.e., the mechanism for RDF claims/statements interpretation?

I ask because in recent times, there appears to be a line of thought 
that doesn't consider entailment as being the mechanism that's intrinsic 
to RDF.

Basically, a piece of structured data  is interpretable as RDF because 
an RDF processor understands RDF entailment.
