[Cubicweb] Cubic Web Supported Formats

I am interested in modeling some engineering problems in an intelligent way. 
I have previously looked in a general way at how an ontology can be developed 
to describe problems in a consistent way and have found out that this is difficult.

My idea is to be able to use cubicweb to work with an (as yet not defined) ontology.
Your examples show this to be possible, so that is helpful.

I am aware that RDF is something which can be represented in different ways.
It forms a part of what is known as the "Semantic Web Layer Cake"
(see for example http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?SemanticWebLayerCake )

The comment I quoted from your web site implied that there were some aspects of RDF
which you did not see as important to support, and I wanted to find out why.

I am very interested in data exchange as I have lots of interesting data trapped
in tools which don't do export other than presentational i.e. I lose the value in 
my structure, which is one of the reasons for being interested in cubicweb.

Thank you
