Hi!

Thank you for your comments John and Danny!

Creating hypertext (mainly) for other humans and describing semantics in 
a machine-interpretable way are two different things.
As for the latter, not everyone is going to do it and those who do, 
describe their ontologies in very different ways with errors
and inconsistencies and using various representation formats.

Cheers,
Kuldar
