Do you expose or have considered exposing "who's using what" or "what I am
using" lists in DOAP (a machine readable form)?
If so, how do you express a link from a person to an application he/she is

If we had a property to express this link, then adding a "favorite" tag
would be quite easy.

P.S. For the "what I am using" lists you don't need to export full DOAP
profile - just a link to the DOAP profile (its URI?) should be enough. Also
you would need to identify people - that's where FOAF comes in handy.

Sounds interesting. :)
