This seems to me to be a broken link.

Same here.

The intent of your project seems interesting.  (Perhaps offline), I'd be
interested to hear the usage scenarios you see it possibly enabling.

This is the first time I've heard of anyone trying to define multiple
ontologies in a single document.  (Not that I've been listening as long
as many on this list).  What are the requirements of your environment
that would make a single document make the most sense?

I'm pretty much a beginner as well in RDF/XML (I find N3 much easier to
start with), so I hope that someone will correct this if it's wrong, but
could you do:

<Description about="http://www.gtk.org#DIA" bagID="diaSubClassStmt">
  <DAML:subClassOf rdf:resource="http://www.gtk.org#Application" />
</Description>

<Description about="diaSubClassStmt">
  <rdfs:comment>This applies to the subclass of. DIA is a GTKAPP because
  it uses GTK. But it also contains the GTK lib. So maybe we need a new
  property type?</rdfs:comment> 
</Description>

Share and Enjoy,
