btw, this also reflects in the mission statement on top of [1],
do you agree with it?

"The goal of the information-gathering task is to identify existing 
Semantic Web resources, and to ensure that they are easy for others to 
find and utilize going forwards. Resources for this task will include 
tools, products, code, demos, papers and books. The resources are 
presented on a website, can be annotated and searched. Users can find 
these resources based on a categorization ontology. This website is 
named *Semantic Web Information Portal*, or short *SWIP*."

if not, just edit it there so that it reflects your idea of [1].
(don't argue too long in e-mails, just edit the mission statement, and 
edit it in a way that makes your arguments for the edit clearly visible, 
we can always revert changes,
e-mail arguments take longer.)
