OpenLink Virtuoso Open Source edition [1] + OpenLink Data Spaces (ODS)  
[2] (also open source) can deliver all of the above.

Some of this is implemented.  The rest would take a bit of effort, but  
shouldn't be terribly difficult given the existing underpinnings.

Drupal can be used as part of ODS, if you want.  Most of its  
functionality exists in other ODS applications.

As the copyright holders, we could set you up with non-viral  
licensure, for the parts we have created ourselves (e.g., ODS,  
Virtuoso, etc.) but not for third-party pieces (e.g., Drupal).   
Whether this makes sense depends on many factors. Take a look, and we  
can start such a conversation if our feature set is agreeable.

Ted
