Re: RDF Thrift : A binary format for RDF data

Hi Andy,

This looks very interesting! Any thoughts already on how this relates to/could be combined with HDT [1,2]?

best regards,

p.s.: BTW, personally, I think it would be great to think about whether binary, efficient encodings 
for RDF and similar formats would have a space for standardization in W3C.
