DAML-S is a DAML+OIL ontology for Web services.  It does not extend
the expressive power of the DAML+OIL language.  Rather, it provides
a set of classes and properties that enables specification of
properties and capabilities of Web services, while trying to be
agnostic with respect to how they're used.

I hope that answers your question.
