Bibframe should serve as a vehicle to establish interactive catalog data transport over the open web, from library to library, and from and to external communities, but with third party implementations of choice.

What a good idea. A parallel implementation(s) guide would help draw some of the technology specific debate away from confusing the modelling and vocabulary discussion. Not that implementation is not important, just separate.
Yes, This all makes sense as long as we bear in mind the need for seamless integration of data and implementation. The two may be separate but I don't think the development of one can be successful without consideration of the other at all times.
