I've spoken with people in my lab who are doing the most with semantic
web services, including service composition using hierarchical
planners and OWL reasoners. There *is* positive overlap between our
query language, and its expressivity, and computing constraints and
requirements for web services.

For example, some web service planning scenarios use OWL and KB
reasoning to track the state of the world, figuring out preconditions
and effects, for example, in an OWL-S scenario. But other scenarios
(and groups and tools) use RDF to represent the state of the world
and, thus, are using things like RDQL to compute
constraints. Presumably in these scenarios, a DAWG query language
would be useful too.

I think this message should be taken as discharing CTION KendallC:
investigate overlap between RDF query and web service constraints.
