All,    (01)

I think we continue to miss a fundamental issue that is the root of so 
much confusion. Personally, I believe positioning RDF as both a data 
model and a collection of syntaxes is the root of the problem.    (02)

A very simple question. How is RDF (the model) different from the long 
established Entity-Attribute-Value model? What does it bring to the 
table that differentiates it?    (03)

I have some answers to the above, but I would like to see if responses 
to what's posed above (from others) could lead to clarity that's 
desperately needed re. RDF.    (04)
