Hello, Edward,
I'm very glad to see this idea moving forward.  Two comments:

An essential feature, for me, would be the ability to write custom
MapReduce jobs to process RDF, independent of the RDF query processor.
 That way I could plug in my own inference engine, rules engine, or
graph transformer.

I'd also like to see re-use of existing APIs wherever possible, like
JRDF or RDF2Go.  It may be worth examining other large-scale RDF
databases like Mulgara to see if any code can be reused.
