Well RDF seems to be the answer that keeps popping up in this thread and
as I've said, I do think it's part of the answer.  I'm just not sure
it's the complete answer.  You've still got the problem of
addressability which then drags in ontologies or link bases.  As soon as
you drag in either of those you've got the problem of query mechanisms
and given the current state of the art and the amount of machinery you
need to manage and move around to handle all that I'm not sure you have
anything approaching a universal solution?
