All understood; but I suspect when you take away the gofai veneer 
you are left with a useful db interlingua tho' certainly that's not 
goping to wow anyone. There's nothing in the specs that says gofai 
is a runner this time around - yet I find RDF practical for the 
stuff I mentioned to Michael Rys, which many people might consider 
humdrum (systems management, logging, operations). It seems to gives 
me just enough abstraction over heteroegenous systems of servers 
applications and protocols without going as far as something like 
smartfrog or a grid topology.

But it feels weird talking about Elliotte in the third person, given 
he's subscribed, so if you don't mind, I'll stop here :)
