For those of you who didn't see this in our public comments list - 
FIPA has endorsed OWL.  Thanks to John Dale and any other FIPA 
members who helped raise this issue to the board's attention -- a 
great model for the new outreach component of our work (and, in this 
case, a necessary one since it removes our last charter dependency to 
a non-W3C group)

>FIPA, the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents, is the premier 
>standards body for developing and deploying agents for 
>interoperability in heterogeneous environments. As such, it gives 
>the FIPA Board of Directors great pleasure in officially giving its 
>endorsement for the W3C's Web Ontology Language (1.0) and supports 
>its move to Candidate Recommendation. FIPA recognises that 
>ontologies and their formal description languages are criticial to 
>the vision of the Semantic Web and also to enabling software agents 
>to interpret their environment in a more meaningful ways.

>The Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) is an 
>international consortium of industrial and university partners 
>formed in 1996.  Its mission is the promotion of technologies and 
>interoperability specifications that facilitate the end-to-end 
>interworking of intelligent agent systems in modern commercial and 
>industrial settings. More information about FIPA can be found at
