Hi Jeen,

thanks for the paper, i went through it and the SESAME/RQL search engine
and i think I can boil down my doubts on my own proposal (i.e. not using
RDF for simplicities sake) to one basic question:

==> implications of RDF for flexible (i.e. upgrade-able) software agents:
the core question for me is, if RDF enables some kind of generic extension
framework for software agents.

it would be cool to be able to "upgrade" software agents simply be
importing an extension module which (in your case) could  contain:
- a number of RDF triples (representing axioms of a higher level ontology
schema like daml+oil)
- a number of RQL queries, that provide some kind of inference patterns.

is this the vision you are working on?
how likely is this vision realizable?
or will/should DAML+OIL be the conceptual basic framework for such an
effort (which in turn, would make RDF serialization less relevant and could
be generated ex post, for compatibility reasons)
