As soon as I read this, I got to thinking that I
probably got the essense of Nicola's paper wrong.
I did some digging and came up with another paper
that explores the ideas of the first paper in
greater detail.    (04)

Unfortunately, I've not had a chance to study
this as much I could. But interestingly, Nicola's
later diagram includes a Top-Level ontology
mapped to Domain a Task ontology and finally the
Application ontology. And based on Adam's
comments this structure is making much more sense
to me.    (06)

I've read more than a few posts recently that
discusses the problem of Context. I'm wondering
if Nicola's ideas addresses those issues as well.    (07)
