| I'm trying to convince people here to spend a great deal of money to
| move to a standard that I believe could be very useful in a large
| number of applications.  Currently I spend a lot of time trying to
| convince people that topic maps are better as a general
| architectural component than RDF/RDFS/OWL.  The problem is that
| there are a few idiosyncracies and issues with topic maps that make
| it an uphill battle.  The closed model (arbitrary markup) is but one
| of them.  Lack of TMCL and TMQL are among the other issues.  If
| people are interested in the other issues, I will reply as time
| allows in a separate thread.

Yes, please. I'd be interested to hear about this.
