Hi Michael,

I think Yves' proposal kind of hits our complexity-line. Do you remember 
we drew something about the complexity that voiD is aiming to solve at 
the right corner of the poster? That might give people some idea the 
sort of the complexity we want to expose in voiD "at the starting point" :)

Yves,

There is an excellent paper in ESWC by Andy Langegger. I think you might 
also be interested:

/A Semantic Web Middleware for Virtual Data Integration on the Web
/Andreas Langegger, Wolfram Wöß, Martin Blöchl (Johannes Kepler 
University Linz)

cheers,

J.
