Right.

Thanks a lot. That's not two years old btw :)

I opted for DAML+OIL becaused it seemed more 'finished' than OWL, and
there are much more tools and reasoning engines supporting it. (Are
there any support programs for OWL at all? Isn't it still very much 'in
development'?). And perhaps most importantly because DAML+OIL is what
DAML-S uses. They have said that thir intention is for the next release
to be 'OWL-S' though, but I need it now, and I have already done some
work on my files.

My intention so far has been:

The client has the DAML-S Profile files (and all needed supporting
vocabularies etc) for the kind of devices it want to use. (And the whole
parent profile hierarchy).

The server sends it:
Its implementation of the profile.
Its process model, service and grounding files.


As far as vocabularies go, so far I have just used some primitive XSD
datatypes, and some derived types that I have defined in XML Schema 
myself. 

Using an existing device description vocabulary would be nice. I will
definitely look at CC/PP.

Note that I do not intend to use the ontologies in the 'standard',
distributed way. I do not assume that my clients and servers have
Internet connectivity, only that they can talk to each other. So all
vocabularies/ontologies have to be present at client or server.
