There's been some interest, at the last SWEO WG telecon at least, to allow 
any XML WSDL vocabulary to be GRDDL'able (i.e. automatically 
transformable) into a WSDL ontology.

Does anyone have a XSLT that takes XML WSDL files and transforms them into 
RDF? Would anyone be interested in doing this?

 		thanks,
