Hi,
first of all, it's good to see Any23 try to come into the Apache incubator.

Could you expand on the reasons which made you choose Sesame for Any23?
In particular, what's missing in Jena which is needed by Any23 or what

Increasing code reused and maximizing interaction between Apache projects
(even if in the incubation phase) is, IMHO, a good thing.
