I was thinking that it would be very interesting and useful to be have a cwm and Euler module that loaded RDBMS data into the inference engine for subsequent processing.  

My particular preference would be to do this in a very generic way, preserving some of the table column/table information/structure.  The advantage of this minimal processing is that publishing data from the DB is made as simple as possible.  Subsequent processing with rules could transform/integrate the data to conform with other ontologies.

One advantage of such a module would be to facilitate publishing of RDBMS data in RDF.  Another would be to facilitate combining RDBMS data with other data and rules.

Attached are several n3 files that illustrate one approach.

I'm interested in stimulating a discussion to see what others think of the general idea, to have others help me refine the approach I've outlined, or to propose alternate approaches.  Assuming some sort of consensus could be reached, I'd be willing to do a trial implementation for cwm of such a module.
