I think this issue also involves the application of Semantic Web
(specifically, Linked Data and ontologies). I do not know exactly how,
just now, but my feelings are that this is a path to the future. But, in
my graduate program I am studying these issues, where the IETF
repositories and associates are the main focuses. Questions such as
vocabularies, metadata, knowledge, ownership, and other relationships
are a concern in the research.

It would be interesting to other people interested in the Semantic Web
applications on the infrastructure of the Internet, came in contact to
begin a team.

I promised to join one of them, on identifier technology innovation (along with a few other IETFers). The topic for this effort is future evolution of DNS and other identifiers, including relevant security and management aspects. The viewpoint is primarily to look at this from ICANN’s angle, but of course the matter is interesting to us others as well.

What do we need to do with IDNs? DNSSEC? What will DANE lead to, and how will id-locator split techniques evolve & be deployed? How will applications or users think about identifiers in the future?
