Jacek,

Yes, WSMO counts. Our position is that the if the proponents of semantic 
Web do not think the RDF mapping is a high priority, then we agree that 
this deliverable can be dropped. OWL-S is the most obvious proponent in 
the contenxt of W3C since OWL is already a W3C speciifcation and this 
requirement comes from W3C.  I understand that WSMO has been submitted to 
W3C, which gives WSMO folks like you a legitimate claim to do this RDF 
mapping work. That fact that WSMO also has an Eclipse editor makes me even 
more supportive of you doing the work :-)

I assume there is a natural RDF mapping and that it would be acceptable to 
any semantic Web persuasion. Is that correct?

Arthur, do the proponents of WSMO also count? I.e. if Bijan (of the
OWL-S persuasion) decides to give up and let me (of the WSMO persuasion)
give it a try, will IBM object to the result? It'll still be OWL-based
and certainly reviewed by the OWL-S people in due course, you needn't
worry about that. 8-)

Best regards,

Jacek
