In view of the fact that there are two sides to the RDF coin (Data,
Schema) and that Sergey has invited conversation in regards to effective
storage techniques for the data, I would like to (re-)open the
conversation that has thus far (in my limited awareness) been

There are three (3) dimensions to consider:

RDF Schemas describe the data type and relationships.
RDF data defines the instances of the schema declarations.
The 3rd dimension describes the normalized domain of the first two

I don't believe/agree/assume that you can effectively store content (RDF
data) without regard to the domain described in the schema. In other
words there is a schema (read normalized tables) that applies to the
domain of the RDF schema, and thus to the RDF data.
