RDFa API comments from TimBL

Hi All,

I was speaking to Tim Berners-Lee earlier who asked me to pass on some 
feedback, he is very keen to see the RDFa API (particularly the 
DataStore interface) aligned with the IndexedFormula from Tabulator, to 
be specific "I think there is a big mistake happening to not make the 
RDFa API look like (tabulators) RDF API where it can" - he has also 
quickly hacked out some examples in section 3.2 here to cover some of 
the use-cases:


Personally, I am also keen to see this happen, preferably implementing a 
simple DataStore which can be wrapped in an IndexedDataStore - 
tabulators library is time proven and many years of feedback and 
improvements have been made, it would be a shame to loose that.

Unless there are any objections, I'll start defining and implementing an 
IndexedDataStore to match the functionality of the IndexedFormula from 
tabulator, which is also in line with my post-implementation-feedback 
[1] earlier this week.
