Curious if anyone else has looked at the charter for the Rule 
Interchange Format Working Group at the W3C?

Section 1.1 Usage Senarios reads remarkably like topic map use cases.

I am not sure why they want to re-invent topic maps but it certainly 
looks like the what has been chartered.

Hmmm, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. ;-)


Hope everyone is having a great day!
