Dan,

In a presentation I gave last month at HL7's RCRIM (regulatory clinical research information management) tech committee, it was clear most folks were not aware of RDF/OWL or weren't sure how it could be applied to HL7's architecture. 

As this was a first introduction to the subject, many people immediately saw the relevance of OWL to their controlled vocabulary needs, and as Helen points out, I think this will be an early area of discussion.

However, the relation between HL7's v3 architecture and the RDF model in areas such as data and protocol messaging, is still uncharted territory, and not everyone in the committee saw the issues the same way. I see this as a potentially important focus point for future interactions between HL7 and HCLS.
