Being based on a simple tuple model RDF is capable of describing anything. The question is whether or not it is capable of describing anything efficiently in a manner that allows that data to be a) queried in human understandable terms (i.e. not using RDF terminology)  and b) maintained in distributed databases (i.e. can I extract parts the different parts of an RDF stream so that they can be used to update different databases efficientily).
