I wanted to note that I think there are a few cool uses of RDF in 
4SuiteServer.  For one thing, you can register document types which include a 
simple but pretty powerful mechanism for translating XPath query results into 
the RDF model.  It also supports users in general, permitting access-control 
lists for RDF statements.  Of course, there's also the ability to process RDF 
Inference Language (RIL) requests for server-side processing.

Speaking of RIL, we're turning some attention towards finishing up and 
polishing this.
