i was just curious, because at least ideally, the same concepts when 
used in different AS vocabularies should be expressed in consistent 
ways, rights?

the main reason from our point of view is that eventually, we would 
still like to come up with "ASQL", the "Activity Stream Query Language", 
that would allow AS users to work with any kind of AS data in a concise 
and consistent fashion. to me it seems that this is much easier if 
there's a common way of expressing (and reusing, when possible) concepts 
across AS vocabularies, so that any data can be processed according to 
its AS semantics.

and if you're saying now that this is *not* what you were asking for, "a 
demonstrated practical value", you're certainly right. it's simply 
something we have noticed while using AS, that using it declaratively 
would be much better than just treating it as random JSON, and shared 
concepts would help a great deal.

thanks for the feedback and cheers,
