it would be desirable imho that artifacts - such as schemas, and their
possible implementations - could capture (even vaguely) relations of nodes
with the rest of the network because that provides the context, it
constitutes largely its semantics, thanks to which dynamic processes such
as reasoning and intelligence can take place


really - it was really just a broad thought, I am not suggesting any action
to be taken
just checking if there is such a provision here, or even whether it would
make any sense at all

 I ll do that thanks. I admit I have not studied the schemas in detail, I
ll report back if I find anything interesting

actually it just came to me while I was on the other list, talking about
the EM framework we came up with, then thought about not yet
having a schema for EM, then of course the question followed about the
related terms, hence I asked

I actually don't think of RDf the same way you do, maybe :-)
I am interested in schemas as they offer a mechanism to support
some structure, which in turn support some functionality (retrieval,
classification etc), enabled RDF

as such it can be about RDF, as well as about NL. But I should rephrase, I
am not much interested in a quantitative measure of relatedness,  as a more
rounded notional association and discovery- the kind that intelligent
beings and things can make when connecting dots. I can work things out
myself , even that just to some extent only - but machine needs to be told
pretty much everything
