From my using 3store and generally working on the
semantic web, it occurs to me that the most useful
feature would be the ability to do distributed queries.
It would make doing funky things across different
systems much easier. It would mean knowledge bases
could be crossreferenced quickly, taking advatage of
inference, without merging or manually doing multiple
queries. A query could be something like:

SELECT ?x, ?y, ?z WHERE (?x, ?y, ?z) FROM some.3store,
(?z, ?y, ?x) FROM some.other.3store;

There would be no need to do anything messy like
ontology mapping as each clause would only be concerned
with ontologies on one knowledge base.
