So these will end up in the protocol document in some similar form;
but I'll need to describe the meanings of these predicates, and as I
just pointed out on the phone call, I don't really understand
dawg:usesOntology... Do you mean that the query service "understands"
(in some vague way) some or all of the terms from these vocabularies?
Or something else?

I heard similiar good reports from this workshop, too. Basically,
"we're going to use SPARQL query and protocol".
