>> Seeing that Martin has produced/proposed such an elegant extension to GR
>> (i.e. the seeks objectProperty), I suggest that the extension to GR 
>> be made.
>> This will cover about 80% of what is offered by TIWAN. The rest is

>> to discussions (i.e. negotiations) linked to the offering, and these 
>> can be
>> tied to GR data using SIOC, thus no further need to modifications. That
>> leaves about 5% of TIWAN unaccounted for, this deals with service 
>> specific
>> requests, but I have some ideas of how that can be covered with no 
>> mods to
>> GR, please see my reply to Martin's comments for more.
>> Cheers,
