I think a long term goal would be to support some RDF output to help identify connections between people. There is FOAF (http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/) and various other ontologies that describe a person and their relationships. At this point, I wouldn't know what is the best flavor for this, but you can see parts of it in practice in Wordpress with their FOAF support, on LinkedIn with a hCard microformat (http://www.linkedin.com/profile?key=14228901), or freebase which outputs an RDF document (Chuck Norris: http://rdf.freebase.com/rdf/en.chuck_norris).
The benefits of linked data in an accessible format are numerous, but its basically to allow Anahita to be useful for other programs to integrate with. I know Nooku can easily output to JSON, but that doesn't necessarily provide the same linked data.
Is this something that is of interest to the program's development in the future?
