Linked Data Basic Profile Distilled

Here are key practices we need to follow according to the Linked Data Basic Profile 1.0.

Use standard HTTP methods for touching resources.
As well as SPARQL, a resource server should provide HTTP methods of POST or PUT, DELETE, PUT or PATCH, and GET for creating, deleting, updating, and fetching resources. For update-collision tolerance, clients should use HTTP If-Match and ETags for updating resources (with PUT or PATCH).

Use RDF/XML for representing any resource indicated by and requested through a URI.
