Maybe we can start with something simple, then work on a more descriptive
over time?

I'd love to see apps working as hyperlinks from a profile, by, say, end of
year.  If the system is too complex it takes longer to implement.

If we go with a single predicate we can always do some owl : sameAs when we
get fuller descriptions.

e.g. in my-profile.eu right now, if i have a blog, it would display on my
profile ... if we can do something similar with apps, that means i can use
my profile page as my hub, and then go to my apps from there ...
