I would like to work on the LDP based API to fit the Evans' [1] and Swat0's [2] 
requirements. This is going to be most fun if we do it as a group, so perhaps 
those of us here who have experience with LDP and those who would like to learn
about how to think of it could gather and try to work out in a light weight manner
how to sketch the main outlines of such an API. 

We could do this on the rww Community Group perhaps [3] and report on the W3C Social
Web WG iteratively the results ( so that the learning curve does not end up being too
high ). 

It would be good if as a group we could work out what the required results of this
work should be.
