A good way to do a virtual project is to do an open source project.
Fully agree this is the way to go.
I would like to propose that the proposed UBL ontologies be managed
This is interesting as I have not thought of the ebXML registry as
an Ontology server. For example, I do not believe the RIM supports
the formal notion of 'subclassOf" which would be critical. While I
believe we could use a custom association with this label, that is
weaker than the notion of subclass being built into the RIM. For example,
a formal notion of subclass would allow the child information object to
automatically inherit the attributes of the parent. Please correct me
if I am misunderstanding the RIM or its implications.
Additionally, I would recommend the Ontology classes be associated
with a terminology registry for each concept (in essence equating a
class with a concept). Following step 3, in the protege Ontology 101
document, we need to enumerate important terms in the Ontology.
I am proposing a step beyond enumeration to formal definition with
concept, terms and referents. Is the ebXML registry suitable for a terminology
registry? Or do people know of others?
