Great! So another bonus of having XML available at the top end is that it
can be trivially transformed into whatever you like. For example, did you
know that behind the scenes google.com renders search results in
using XSLT to transform them into HTML?

I don't want to talk too much about what the future holds for OCCI (for fear
of accusation of boiling the ocean et al) but there would be nothing
stopping an XSLT god (e.g. not me) from writing an XSLT based web interface
with all the ontological, taxonomical & semantic goodness their heart
desired ;)
