Thanks for the link.  The Sun GKE project is the one I've mentioned here a few 
times.  It's the one in which Fourthought is the primary contractor.  I wasn't 
aware that they'd made this white paper public.

I should say that the project is proving a resounding success within Sun.  So 
much for the idea that RDF is some academic oddity.
