What does "Standard Web Technology" mean?

I do know of the Architecture of the World Wide Web (AWWW) which covers 
the key components for building a Web-like abstraction atop the 
Internet, comprised of:

1. URIs -- for denotation
2. HTTP URIs -- for implicit denotation and identification (courtesy of 
implicit Name->Address indirection for URI meaning interpretation)
3. HTML - language and notation combo for describing and representing 
4. RDF - language for representing entity relations using a variety of 
loosely-coupled notations.

1-4 are the basis of the Web as we know it.

#4 in regards to the "RDF" moniker is just a formalization (by the W3C) 
of what was always intrinsic to the Web's original design [1][2].

Being "Standard Web Technology" based (as I understand it) is a little 
different from you continue frame this matter.
