Now if we just had JSON2IMS for people who want to use HTML5 but don't
want to turn off their mainframes or expand their skill set, life would
be good!    (02)

But seriously, I'm all for interoperability, and tools like these are
especially important in times of technology transition. I myself don't
have any projects that call for this functionality, but it's an obvious
inverse function for RDB2RDF that surely is needed. Will this tool be
developed to be able to run R2RML mapping instructions in reverse? (I
haven't studied the spec enough to know if that is even possible in
general--surely it must be for a subset of cases.)    (03)
