In fact in LMF we freely implemented our interpretation of Read-Write 
Linked Data, which now fits pretty with upcoming LDP draft. Since this 
is one of the main focus of the proposal, I'd try to state more clearly 
such circumstance in the text.

The article you are referencing it's this, I guess:

Although we don't explicitly cite it, the concept is always present in 
our idea of Enterprise Linked Data. In fact, due our industrial 
experience such data lifting is not so easy in many real scenarios as 
it's in theory. Discuss that at the proposal is define telly a good idea.

Thanks so much!
