This is an odd comment. It's like saying good luck preserving your model of
TCP if you require network developers to know where Postel worked.

TCP has to work, whether or not webmasters know the intellectual history its
development, and the same will be true of whatever eventually becomes what
the semweb ideas are aiming at. Pat's knows something about the history of
what's known to work and what isn't. You ignore that history at the peril of
your ideas simply not working.
