Given that most semantic web effort and research is now (or still?) in rdf and description logic space:
what is (in topic map space) the current state of ideas how a topic map construct may be experimentally and for research purposes tied to more formal semantics?

Let me naively ask:
How can/might/shall some axiomatic definition in an arbitrary conceptual language for concepts and relations be associated with a TM item?
a) within some TM attribute (which?), in textual form, to be ignored by most other applications
b) as an attribute one can dynamically retrieve from a special registry, given the PSI

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
