Right, but that's the point. We're not "on" the SW yet. The discussion
is about the interface between the Web and the Semantic Web and
how the Web architecture should/must be extended to allow for 
obtaining knowledge from web authorities about resources having
URIs grounded in that authority.

Once you have that information, and are doing SW things with it,
then the Web is out of scope.
