That's reasonable.  I worked for a time with some technology from MSR
which takes two different relational or XSD schemas and suggests
mappings between them.  This was based purely on analysis of the two
schemas and some instance data -- it is easy to imagine this being
augmented with feedback from thousands of users.

You're right that schema itself is not a bad thing; although I feel that
rdf:type is a stumbling block to RDF adoption right now.
