The argument is actually worse, it's "MF's semantic Web" vs. 
"W3C's Semantic Web", a pattern you'll see aggressively pushed in
many MF presentations. Of course it's childish and also doesn't make
sense, but it's a marketing strategy to (re-)define what people 
associate with the term "[Ss]emantic Web". And it may work out if
we don't sweo properly.

I sweo, you sweo, he/she/it sweos, we ... ;)
