This is excellent stuff and I totally support your views about composable Sem Web tools:

Just a couple of observations:

- the AJAX interface is neat but its no good for browsing: when returning to a list of links, status has been lost so an unfolded list is folded again, and there is no indicated of visited links. I would favour conventional web behaviour.

- not your problem but I note that search via Sindice is rather disappointing  - for example

http://sameas.org/html?q=Kiwi   (a general term for a flightless bird found in New Zealand divided into several species, but also a colloquial expression for a New Zealander and a Kiwifruit)

throws up a radio station, an animated cartoon and lots of wordnet links to a juggle of plumbing but no juice.  No sign of
