Perhaps the fresh set of the great unwashed out here in RSS-land can help
discover the ambiguities and help 'em get fixed? As more of us beat on this
stuff the rough edges start to show. Let's work on helping the other efforts
fix stuff where they can. I too like the Wordnet possiblities. Combining them
with stuff like NewsML, IPTC, PRISM, XFML, XTM and TopicMaps is going to lead in
interesting directions.
