Sorry, we have now a language, RDF to state assertion. I think that is more
useful for us if we try to use this language to assert someting and not the
most common *natural language*. Moreover, something like
*worlAuthorityOnBakedBeans" has, for my PC the same meaning than
"skjhgksjghslhgdghhg" and I am not able to see relation between it and the
first assertion.

all the best
