Martin,

The real beauty here is that SIOC and GR mesh nicely :-)

FOAF (ground zero for profiles), SIOC (ground zero for data spaces i.e., 
data containers and items), and GR (ground zero for products/services 
vendors and buyers)  are the 3 critical stools of the Web of Linked Data!

On top of the above slap in some SUMO, Yago, WordNet, OpenCyc, and 
UMBEL, and what do you have? Exactly what the cynics claimed wasn't 
achievable :-)
