Hi Aldo,

I assume you know that our SPIN API [1] is open source under AGPL, and  
also the specification as well as the ontologies are completely open  
and available to anyone on the web [2]? We certainly do welcome  
community feedback as well as wider adoption, also by other tools. We  
even picked a base namespace that has no connection to anything "top".  
So "proprietary" is IMHO not the right term :)

Regards,
Holger
