Danny,

your mail made me think of Robert E. Kents "Web Conceptual Space"
initiative( http://wave.eecs.wsu.edu/ ).
There are several "similar concepts" between his work and your initiative.
There is a demo program allowing you to play with similarity (
http://wave.eecs.wsu.edu/WAVE/versions/versions_2_x.html ).
He (and his team) are also working on ontologies.
A quote from one of his pages is "in childhood using SHOE, in adolescence
using RDF, in adulthood using CG" ( http://wave.eecs.wsu.edu/CKRMI/OML.html
),
so there may be a road ahead for us, RDF adepts (adolescents?).

Another interesting "related concepts" (very likely not based on RDF) tool
may be Catria's Themescape:

Hope this is useful / inspiration to you.
