Speaking as an Abdera committer (though not very active) so take this  
with a grain of salt.

Abdera is mostly nice and I would be sad if we decided not to use it,  

1. Not very active at the moment: basically it's just James working on  
it and release 1.0 is long overdue (yes, you can blame me, lazy  
committer, as well for this)
2. It has a bit of a FS (Flexibility Syndrome) with it's support for  
pluggin different parsers/OM implementations.
3. Axiom, as you say, might be heavyweight. There has also been some  
discussion on the mailing list abouth ditching Axiom.

Still it's got a decent OM interface and first-class support for IRIs  
and I18N. Never had problems with the client implementation, also.

So I'm thinking that we might want to reuse the existing interfaces,  
but provide a "lightweight" implementation for them. In time, we could  
contribute our experience as feedback to Abdera and help design its  
next version.

We should also strive to reuse the i18n stuff and the client stuff  
too, which only depends on the interfaces, AFAIK.
