Fresnel is the state of the art.
* it is also supported by http://less.aksw.org/browse
* we use it in production for configuration editors for
aperture.sourceforge.net, the ontologies include fresnel lenses.
* you won't find anything else that really fits RDF because of the
"subclass/multiclass/missing properties/too many properties" dynamics
you have in RDF. Templating languages are not good for this, also
fresnel data can spread and grow on the web like RDF - there are no
security problems associated with it (as would maybe be with templating)

sure, it is bad for many cases and could be improved, but the general
concept of Lenses/Views/display/hide properties and ordering properties
is essential and working.

> The Java implementation of FSL made available as part of JFresnel is actually standalone (w.r.t JFresnel). So you can get just two small JAR files for the FSL engine, available through Maven, that will work either with Jena 2 or Sesame 2. See [1] for more info.
