Thanks for your reply Joachim. It wasn't so sunny lately in Malta though :(

For some more thoughts. It seems that the efforts going on right now focus
mainly on reasoning languages such as OWL, DAML-OIL and DAML-S and on the
application of these, to for example WS retrieval/matchmaking and
composition. The idea of incorporating rules or having a new layer on top of
the present ontology one is being discussed only in recent papers. How in
your opinion will such rule markup be utilised? I have read papers about
SWEET Rules where they expressed rules in DAML but the concept is still
rather a bit confusing to me. Will we be having a newer version of DAML with
rules on top? Will we have a separate set of rules stored in a repository
and that can be imported through some URI?
