Daniel, Thanks for the response. I'll try to reply your question inline
with your message:

No, I'm trying to develop a very minimalistic knowledge component reusable
in other applications. Yes, it will have APIs for alignment and merging of
datasets, link discovery and resource identity resolution but only in a
given domain of discourse which is the RDF (plain) data from which the
component is populated. 'Plain' RDF means I have *no schema information* in
the input datasets, data could be gathered from any source, even a CSV
file. The final deployment is a RESTful service which takes RDF fragments
as input and returns the augmented knowledge regarding those fragments and
also 'learns' (indexes) the queries (answers) and returns results
(responses). Another RESTful service being built is one that enables a
Semantic / Object mapping returning an object graph representation of the
responses, serialized in a manner which allows to populate classes, objects
and properties in the client (JSON, JAXB).

At least now, I'll make no use of the linked data stack. The component has
an activation framework which enables me to gather the domain information I
need directly from the business data sources.

Augmentation of CMS repositories. Master Data Management (BI)

There is the syllogistic reasoning mode which allows using Resources and
their (class/instance) IDs and their Links to reason in this way:

Socrates kind Human.
Human life Mortal
Socrates kind*life Mortal.

The component can be used as a client consuming or service provider for
those solutions.
