Hi Carine,

There are times that could work but it is probably not general enough  
for the people with whom I'm dealing.

As a first step, I want them to point to something that can have the  
slightest resemblance to a semantic model.  I expect a Word document  
capturing a data dictionary and the URI will be a metadata entry for  
the document.  There won't be any links into the document.

I can see how what I want could be done with RDF, but at this point my  
audience is focused on schemas and WSDLs, so SAWSDL comes to mind  
because it tweaks what they already know about.
