I am new to the list and still catching up on past threads.

I wanted to bring to your attention that the ebXML Registry TC [1] at 
OASIS has recently approved the creation of the Semantic Content 
Management SC per charter defined at:


The charter above is admittedly vague so let me describe what we envision.

ebXML Registry specifications [2] today provides a distributed service 
for managing arbitrary content described by standardized metadata. With 
Semantic Content Management features the ebXML Registry information 
model and API would be extended to add direct support for 
publish/discovery/usage of OWL ontologies and other RDF content. This 
would include extending the ad hoc query API for the registry to allow 
for semantic queries that can utilize OWL ontologies managed within the 
ebXML Registry. Knowledge bases maintained within the envisioned service 
would be distributed using the existing federation model of ebXML 
Registry. All functionality would be available with access control and 
other security measures already supported by ebXML Registry.

The Semantic Content Management SC of the ebXML Registry TC  is 
interested in working  in close cooperation with the various Semantic 
Web WGs within W3C. While the ebXML Registry TC has significant 
experience in secure, distributed management of metadata and content we 
are learning about the semantic web.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions on the work described above 
and comment on how it may relate to proposed DAWG WG. Please contact me 
directly if you are interested in contributing to the Semantic Content 
Management work. Thanks.
