Dear Tim,

The project I have in mind is not redundant with SWAN-SIOC, both in its 
technical implementation and the biomedical content that will be 
represented. The statements will not have discourse relationships among 
themselves, and indeed such relationships would be better represented 
through the vocabulary that SWAN can add to the basic SIOC vocabulary.
This project could also demonstrate the value of the alignment of SWAN and 
SIOC, showing that information represented in basic SIOC can be easily 
aligned with information represented in the more expressive SWAN vocabulary, 
via the SWAN-SIOC alignment. This is important for demonstrating the 
advantages gained (in terms of interoperability) by the SWAN-SIOC alignment.

Cheers,
Matthias Samwald
