I am glad a nice thread is starting.
The reason of my question, is due to our beliefs ("our" means our research group under the direction of Dr. Daniel Miranker) of the way the Semantic Web can be successful. The Semantic web will connect data, but where is most of this data stored? Databases! And we will continue using databases for life. Therefore we believe that the success of the semantic web will depend on the ability to easily, maybe even trivially, either generate local ontologies as part of a database interface or generate mappings of local databases to global ontologies. Currently, these mapping systems exist and this can be possible, to connect a DB to the semantic web (in the case of the D2R Server) but with all the existing databases, who is going to build the ontologies that are going to be needed to be mapped.
