Probably this particular example for a start. The Conceptual Graph model
Sowa uses throughout his work isn't that far removed from the one underlying
RDF. In fact Tim Berners-Lee [1] and others have considered mappings. I'm
sure Analogical Reasoning could be done with XSLT, but you'd have to start
by coming up with some way of representing the arbitrary graph structure of
the entities and relationships first, over which you could apply the
appropriate transformations. That would probably mean reinventing RDF.
