Charlie,

As per our offline exchange, parsing DAML-S should follow directly
from parsing DAML.  It's just the same as parsing any DAML ontology,
except that you know in advance that there are some distinguished
classes that will exist in all representations.  I haven't looked at
how the DAML parser works to comment directly on the approach you're
proposing, but it sounds reasonable.

I'm curious.  What are you guys going to be using DAML-S for?  I'm
always interested in seeing how it's being used!

Regards,
Sheila
