Does it solve all semantic interoperability problems?

No - it is just a start to offer a reference, so that users creating new resources could use the registered concepts and schemas describing legacy data can refer to them. But we will found that not all tag sets which are in use for various purposes can easily be mapped on another one. It also will largely depend on the intended usage. For searching an imperfect mapping may result in less precision, but for a researcher this may not be a problem.
