Leo,

I am referring to this portal as a "Concept" I tried to emphasize we 
don't respond to the content.

The point I am making by referring to this portal. Basically, is this 
the kind of portal we seek (there are other aspects of what I think we 
need in this portal).

Lee: I have not being making a technical argument. And I hope that by 
exposing this portal I have at least illuminated my point :-) This 
portal is at the end of the day a layer above the RDF Data Source from 
the Information Gathering effort (for lack of a better description: It 
is an RDF application bound to the RDF Data we've gathered).
