Text Mark-up

Calais looks like an interesting tool for semantic mark-up of text. Not sure how good it is, experimetns to generate keywords or a summary from texts have been just OK at best. Still it may be useful in some instances and is something to be aware of. What would this mean for TEI encoding, for example?
The Calais initiative seeks to help make all the worlds content more accessible, interoperable and valuable via the automated generation of rich semantic metadata, the incorporation of user defined metadata, the transportation of those metadata resources throughout the content ecosystem and the extension of it’s capabilities by user-contributed components.
Seen on LISNews.
