I have no idea what a semantic search is, or what an ontology is
supposed to be either.

If the tracker-store (which seems to be what's being proposed) is great
for storing web browser history, and making it available, why not start

Having the tracker-store in GNOME just for the sake of having it there
(or hoping that developers will start using it because it's blessed) is
the wrong way around. Write patches for apps to use it, otherwise it's
as good as dead-weight.
