That's a nice idea.

I wouldn't say SPARQL templates though, as that's somewhat limiting and
not easily machine-processable. An RDF vocabulary for describing
information needs and/or capabilities, with predicates like
"can_understand_class" or "can_infer", would be sufficiently abstract
and also link nicely into the existing descriptions of the vocabularies
in question. (And SPARQL 1.1 adds URIs for entailment regimes I think?)

Has anything like this been done already?
