There's certainly lots of valuable insight in the paper.

Relevant, I think, to the Semantic Web is the note at the beginning of the 
paper's notes: "Given the problem of changing addresses of web sites, the 
author has provided keywords for searching the site in Google in the event 
that the present address be changed in future." Are there any plans to 
address this ultimate, grand difficulty of the URI scheme? Other than, of 
course, waiting for Google to come and rescue us.

A related issue is the natural language problem in the sense that if the 
semantics of a web service or a consumer of web services are expressed in 
terms of one natural language, how does one go about matching those 
semantics with semantics expressed in other natural languages. This relates 
to the thought that somehow names used in service descriptions by themselves 
inherently express some degree of semantics. Are globalization, 
internationalization, and localization outside of the scope of the 
development of Web Services? Are Global Web Services beyond the scope of W3C 
Semantic Web charter(s)?

I recommend this 87-page paper "Towards a Semantic Web for Culture" by
Kim H. Veltman which can be accessed at:

http://jodi.tamu.edu/Articles/v04/i04/Veltman/veltman.pdf

The so-called "Semantic Web" in nature is "logical Web", the result is
even XML people cannot understand RDF/OWL due to those logics and the
way of RDF presentation. That's why this technology is not well accepted
and deployed.
That's why I said here before, the more complex the system, the less the
user. It's the same to developing semantic Web services.
