Hi Charles,

This imprecise quote is out of context and actually not even relevant to the rest of your message; I am saying it would be useful if we could attract more people from the Semantic Web community to our work.

As to your message, RDF *is* less common and more complex than basic XML and SQL. I think we must be clear in that. However, there are plenty of [cost] benefits in using Semantic Web technologies (not only RDF). Giorgio, yourself, and many others are right that we need to carry forward a more solid business case to the tool vendors.
