The primary target is to clean up the ontology from duplicated
properties/classes and set correct type hierarchies.
Besides that we have may ideas in mind to enrich and align the ontology

DBpedia was a completely user-driven ontology and we plan to keep it that
way. Now we will only set some editing workflow rules that will ensure a
basic level of quality.
We also plan to change the editing infrastructure and move to WebProtege
that will enable easier importing of automatically generated axioms.

Further alignment to other ontologies is also under strong consideration.

This change will not affect the core extraction framework but will
facilitate the integration of recent work on A-BOX assertions with NLP
