Sounds like a reasonable way to go. Having the RDF stuff in commons is
hopefully useful for many other projects. Would this also include the
JSONLD serializer and parser that is more and more needed by Stanbol and

Having the clerezza platform in Stanbol and thinking in the long term about
merging and using this stuff is a good choice. This can not be done with
some simple imports and we should carefully evaluate what will be the right
way to go in Stanbol.
