To answer some of your questions and ask some more :

- A triple store connector for ARC would be great.

I read that someone involved with ARC development was considering making one, so you may want to check with them in case they have already started. Every store has their own quirks and advantages. There cannot be too many Triple Store connectors for SMW :)

I am especially interested in ARC's capability to query remote stores.

- It would be great to include RDF export of special properties (such as 'Modification date').

I created a patch to do that locally but a more general mechanism suitable for future special properties would be a better approach.

- We noted some issues to follow links from RDF export to RDF export with some clients.

Often, links to other pages are interpreted using URIResolver instead of going to the ExportRDF. Maybe we missed some configuration, but it didn't seem possible to make RDF export browsable without reverting to the HTML pages.

I can put you in contact with someone who ran into that issue if you are interested in hearing more details.
