Hi

Just taking a quick glance at http://www.apml.org/
"APML will allow users to export and use their own personal Attention 
Profile in much the same way that OPML allows them to export their 
reading lists from Feed Readers.

The idea is to boil down all forms of Attention Data  including Browser 
History, OPML, Attention.XML, Email etc  to a portable file format 
containing a description of ranked user interests."

There's a PDF and a work-in-progress draft in their wiki,
http://apml.pbwiki.com/

It has, amongst other things, markup describing weighted concepts. Main 
idea seems to be indicating the topics of interest that some user pays 
attention to. My first reaction was I'd suggest them to do it in SKOS 
instead, since SKOS gives better I18N, links between concepts, and a 
notion of scheme that gives common identifiers to well known concepts 
including many thesauri.  I haven't got time to dig into the details 
though, but thought folk here might find it an interesting potential use 
case for SKOS...
