Yes, I would support that idea and have already been considering it
for my RDF system Redland[1].  XML-RPC and SOAP are good additional
serialisation formats / protocols for RDF-databases on the web to
connect/be connected-to.

I think other RDF implementors will also be working on similar ideas,
maybe also see how it relates to Microsoft's ".NET" (if *that* makes
sense)  At that point we can connect RDF databases and other apps
via the web to see what systems we can actually build.   I strongly
support running code to test things, rather than towers of
unimplemented ideas.

RDF databases were mentioned in another thread.  Feel free to play
with mine[2]
