But nothing can succeed unless it is tried!  Just as LISP "died" but now
most of us are programming tree-data on GC-ed systems supporting
type inspection (and some even with "eval" equivalents), even if it goes 
nowhere it may have good spinoffs.

At least the big picture of the semantic web is being painted
step-by-step, which gives lots of scope for experimentation.
