Please allow me to follow on in thanks!  I have passed this link around 
inside the W3C and we will be taking a long look at this release, and 
will certainly put together a list of comments and responses...

On a first pass, I did have a quick question - what do you mean by "a 
mechanism for grouping together a set of statements in a file would be 
welcome" (this is in the XML syntax portion of the backgrounder)?   I've 
got some folks here eager to decode that one :-)

>Thak you very much for your contribution! I am very excited to see the Uniprot project available in RDF/OWL format, along with your documentation. I think this opens the possibility of working with public bioinformatic data not only in traditional ways, but also through new knowledge discovery collaborations. I specifically look forwards to seeing examples of researchers making statements or hypotheses about protein functions and roles using your data, and being able semantically to tie them to pathway, transcriptomic, chemistry, and disease knowledge!
