Adopt SPARQL's data model for all future Semantic Web standards -- for
all SW protocols and serialisations.

The major differences between SPARQL's data model and RDF are:

  * Explicit support for named graphs
  * Literal subjects
  * Blank node predicates

(Though it might be a good idea to phase out blank nodes.)
