Yep, it's easy to refer to something by it's name.

Yes, you could look at this [2] as a personal initive by SethBot to give the
Semantic Web a machine name (uri).  I think the Scientific American article
will have a far greater impact on our culture than the page you mention.
Also, historically, The Semantic Web, hopefully, will transcend the W3C by a
couple orders of magnitude.  So I still believe that my dubbing is more
likely to catch on than your dubbing.

   Let the best dubbing win !
