Well, I think we will see proof very soon that storing your metadata as
triples will be very useful, and this will probably impact significantly
more people in the short term than TAP.  I'm not arguing that TAP is not
interesting, but I think you are overly limiting yourself by restricting
the discussion to KR, "frames", "AI" or whatever.

At the basic level, the first step is about an open and interoperable
metadata format.  That alone should be interesting and will prove to be
very useful, IMO.
