I agree that something big and killer-appish could go a long way helping 
RDF in this area, but I am not certain that the W3C is the best avenue 
for that. What advantages does it have over an open source project to do 
the same thing, hosted elsewhere but with active participation from RDF 
people from inside W3C?
