there's a UMBEL to dBPedia (thus wikipedia?) mapping already out there, i think. not sure if this would provide what you mean? 

also, interestingly, we've been spending some time "tagging/categorizing" our content with wikipedia URIs (thus dBpedia URIs)... which, when they map to UMBEL or MusicBRainz, etc 

so, i remain puzzled as to the supposed difference between dBpedia/wikipedia, UMBEL, and now openGUID? don't these all basically overlap, as lists of subjects/concepts? which isn't a bad thing, BTW...

Subject: Re: RDFa in Wikipedia
 
I was talking about tagging wikipedia articles with a subject (UMBEL or 
Open GUID, e.g.)

I did see the Semantic-MediaWiki project, but that is more geared 
towards specific ontologies.  There was a student recently working on an 
RDFa plugin for it [1], but not sure how extractable that is to base 
MediaWiki.

There was also a student submission to the SWIKIG group that did not 
receive any responses.  Might be out of date.
