I'm a bit unclear as to what you mean by your note: (01)

What point of Adam's did you agree with? Could you put it
in your own words? (03)
The additional content I have been suggesting is in most cases
*directly* related to the business Ontology, including the concept of
a "Context", which is used within the UBL specification. More
detail will have to be added to "Context" to capture the different
types of business context that they feel are relevant.
I will be quite happy to pursue discussions one-on-one
with anyone who has any questions, objections, or
suggestions for change in anything I have suggested.
However, I will simply ignore any suggestions to junk
everything and start all over, as Adam has recommended.
I plan to suggest additional content as time permits,
and will be happy to discuss specifics about this content
in any forum. I will also make, as I have already, comments
and suggestions about what others recommend.
I have bent over backwards to avoid making any changes
in the existing SUMO/MILO, focusing on additions, with
only a few renamings where there was a logical error
(such as the use of "contract" in different senses)
or ambiguity was a threat.
I have sent another note explaining why I think that
restricting additions of content from members (except
for logical inconsistency) is a really really **bad**
idea, and why addition of content only peripherally
related to the core business concepts can be helpful.
Whether or not a suggested business-related concept
captures the reality of business practice, or is
consistent with the UBL version, are important issues
for us. Discussing whether a peripheral concept happens to
be essential at this particular time is likely to be a great
time-waster, with no possible objective resolution.
Does anyone have any constructive comments on the
business concepts I have suggested? Anyone? (04)
