yes sure! DAML+OIL contributions are more than welcome! one of the main
goals of the survey is to help the RDF developers community to share ideas
and stimulate discussions about query/rules languages as well as store and
retrieval software systems; at the same time we are trying to collect a set
of real-world use cases and practical scenarios about how people are doing
RDF data and information modeling. It is in our hope that such information
will challenge existing software communities and it will help to address
important software design decisions.

we are providing a Web interface to contribute use cases and example
contributions via HTML forms

http://rdfstore.sourceforge.net/2002/06/24/rdf-query/

by using the above URL your can also browse through the current use cases
and query examples database. Differently, you are free to post the text of
your contributions to this list for discussion; in that case, we will
provide to integrate your information into the RDF database

hope this helps
