(Now we have SPARQL, its XML result format, and XQuery/XSLT, we might
just have the raw ingredients for that...)

I'm convinced now. As much by the positive case as re concerns. By
having the two go out at the same time, we'll be in a position to get
slashdotted etc. and not look half-ready.

(aside re publicity... subject 'tags' in blogs/flickr/etc are getting 
a lot of attention lately, and the connection w/ SKOS is being made, 
eg. see http://www.hyperorg.com/blogger/mtarchive/003702.html from
David Weinberger, writeup of v nice work from Siderean that 
emphasises the extra power RDF/SKOS brings to that scene...).

Good catch, sorry I missed that.

I think so too, on reflection and after careful review of Core today.
