Interesting thought, but it is not quite clear what you envision the  
'triple handler' to do?  Do you suggest we store RDF in the  
database?  (I don't like that idea.)  Or should we just look at RDF  
and use matching terminology/properties so we can generate RDF if we  
want to?

The CivicActions people were doing quite a bit of work with RDF, and  
RDF triples, in specific.
