RE: Triplets on the Internet
A while ago I played with P2P for topic map sharing and took some relatively naive approaches which I haven't tested for scalability . My approach was based simply on provenence. In RDF/Topic Maps your provenence information just becomes more data which makes it easy to process with the same tools that you are using for processing the application data - which is nice :-) Another interesting aspect of inferencing over distributed data is that different nodes on the network might have different pieces of information that you need in combination in order to make an inference which tends to have a centralizing influence as you need to pull that data together somewhere in order to make the inference. What that does to a provenence-based trust model is a good question to which I don't currently have an answer...
