There is no reason why the RDF dataset behind SPARQL service should not be
available via another protocol.

Graph Store Protocol standardizes this for triples. For quads one can
simply use standard HTTP semantics.

I.e. if the dataset was exposed over HTTP, a simple GET should retrieve it
all (download the whole dump).
