With a growing amount of annotations within SMW, browsing of data with
sufficient means is vital to make the best the stored data.
The Semantic Drilldown extension helps with the category browsing
experience, unfortunately the browsing is limited to categories only
but sometimes it might be necessary to create virtual categories (as
concepts) are use internal objects as helper vehicle.
We think that "concepts" are a bit undervalued in SMW right now,
but maybe with the help of a more comfortable browsing experience,
users would appreciated concepts in a more dynamic fashion.
Browsing of internal objects (#set_internal and/or #subobject) besides
using #ask is very limited, meaning that browsing of data is nearly
impossible. (Finding is related to, if one knows on what to look for,
browsing is an activity to connect unrelated content by using visual
The help prioritize on what the community sees as vital feature, we
created two requests in bugzilla. The first  is about concepts to
be used in drill down and  is about internal objects (SIO and
#subobject) to be included as browseable objects within drilldown.
People who are interested in those features are free to use the voting
in bugzilla, so the developer can determine the significance in such
