Daniel,

Super words. Ive added a few more for your thoughts and have copied the
working group and Tom Croucher and Cliff Jones. Hope you dont mind?

"If we want apply the Semantic Web as a framework for runtime component
sharing between discreet and disparate systems, like discussed above, we
have to provide means for clearly identifying participating components
based on characterising semantic description properties
(name-pair/predicate-object values), and this differs from current Semantic
Web schemes for unique identification (e.g. FOAF sha1). In such frameworks
the Semantic Web can be seen as one giant global database and, as with
every relational model, issues dealing with composite object identification
have to be addressed.

It is important to note also that schemas now exist to provide adequate
descriptions for both traditional passive content – web-based data – and
active content – web-based functionality in the form of Web Services, for
inclusion as runtime components via Semantic Web identification. So the
notion of the Semantic Web as a global database and a usable artefact at
runtime embodies both descriptive and functional content. Furthermore,
given that concept of runtime sharing has been raised, it is further
important to recognise that the discovery and binding of components at run
time does not necessarily have to be static, leading to the, currently
extreme, notion of dynamically formed ‘runtime Semantic Web systems’. This
appears to agree with the concept of ‘Semantic Grid Computing’ currently
gaining popularity elsewhere in the IT world”

Hi Phil,
here the missing link between the SW in SE and
the importance of composite identification schemes
in the SW. I'm not particular proud of it, but it
suffices for a first discussion. Jeff, please
add as 1st paragraph of 1.2 on your page.

"If we want apply the Semantic Web as a framework for
runtime component sharing between discreet and
disparate systems, like discussed above, we have to
have means for clearly identifying its resources. The
Semantic Web can be seen as one giant database and,
with every data model, issues dealing with object
identification, have to be dealt with.

Identity is one ..."

Best,
  Daniel
