All,

Even if Google makes up their own vocabulary, so what? Is this whole 
game about meshing structured data? This is simply a case of meshing 
their vocabulary with other vocabularies.

btw - the UMBEL framework has existed with this sort of thing in mind 
for eons. Middleware style integration isn't an ABox realm constrained 
activity, you can integrate in the TBox realm, and in actuality this is 
where the real magic will happen :-)
