I agree with the direction, but I also agree with the need to keep feet
on the ground.

Topic Maps are about metadata, that is data about data.

My impression is: we have enough hard time getting the 'data', the
metadata will come afterwords.

So, no TopicMaps or RDF for now, we'll think about that later, if they
make sense, that would be my choice.
