Yes, lots.  I can imagine web services holding assertions: directories
already hold name value pairs, which are simple assertions in their own way.

I wouldn't say that the semantic web *is* the TMS. That was why I said that
it should be possible to publish locally derived  assertions globally.
However at some point you'll want software to operate over these assertions:
TMS are a good tool for that, though I think Tim Berner's Lee is of the view
that the semantic web isn't logic/ai programming. The semantic web isn't
just data either (I hope anyway). Maybe a TMS is more than what is needed
for most: "assertion/annotation processors" or "just a program" might be a
better way to put it.
