The more tempting analysis is that this is humor, somewhat like 
ridiculing UPS for claiming to have a trade mark on "the color brown" or 
Wilson Sporting Goods claimed "ownership" of "the letter 'W'"?

It's a ploy I use in asking about progress in RDF implementations vs. 
the continued talking *about* RDF. Primers are nice but we need usable 
examples - hence my WHEN? query, which is now several years old on 
these lists.
