Profile hierarchy?

Hi,

we are currently developing an application for annotation of Web 
Services with ontological classes.

Our short-term goal is to annotate a couple of hundred Web Services we 
gathered from SALCentral and XMethods and use these annotations as 
training data for our machine learning approach to semantic annotation 
of Web Services. [1]

We want to annotate the service as a whole, the operations and the 
inputs and outputs. Our annotation would map to a subset of the Service 
Profile in DAML-S.

I am currently looking for a "global" ontology that could be used for 
this task. More precisely, first of all I am looking for something like 
the "Profile Hierarchy" that was present in the DAML-S 0.7 examples.

Are there any ongoing efforts to create something like a global profile 
hierarchy for Web Services?

Does something like I'm looking for already exist and I was just too 
blind to see?

I am aware of the NAICS and UNSPSC taxonomies and the SUMO, but they 
don't really seem appropriate for classifiying Web Services.
