Yes, I've used SPIN extensively and am a great fan. Especially now that it's a member submission.

I think it would be great if they could use RDF, and offered the ability to export the created translation rules in a standard, executable languages, such as SPARQL.  I think this is an unmet opportunity.  

Agreed.
