I cannot say what implications this has for you, because I don't know 
your organization nor standardization body nor the work you are doing in 

perhaps you could give me more detail?
(note: I cannot follow the discussion on semantic-web@w3.org, too much 
traffic for me :-/

We created NIE as a standard for the Semantic Desktop, within the 
Nepomuk.semanticdesktop.org project, and we plan to implement it with a 
reference implementation (aperture.sf.net). Standardization is first by 
best practice and community, later we aim for official standardization 
bodies (ISO, W3C, OASIS, still an open question).

What may help us both is when you look at NIE [2] and especially the 
ontology [5] and if you find bugs, send them to us, if not, just use NIE 
as it is.
By this way, we can also both work on Aperture to get good data->rdf 

If you think that NIE is not what you had in mind, you can use anything 
else. Ontologies are an open market :-)

yes, but we have a 15mioEUR EU project running and need to deliver 
something every few months, we couldn't wait for the calender group to 
fix it. I am pragmatic in this regard. We are happy that we have NIE 
working now.

Antoni Mylka was the main author of NIE, he used input and discussed 
with developers from Aperture, Beagle, freedesktop, strigi, etc.


especially the contact ontology:
(in the same folder you find protege 3.0 files for everything)
