Thanks for your response,  I'm forwarding this to the Ontolog Forum 
to provide a record copy.    (02)

Kurt, since the request was addressed to "Onotologicians," I'm not sure it
applies to me.  Also, since C2 is over-loaded with multiple proposed
standards, I'm not sure that I can quibble with your suggestion that it be
ranked as the top priority.  However, I am pleased to see that you 
D3 & D2 in your top five -- since it seems to me that they can help to
enable all of the others.  Based upon my interpretation of "importance" as
meaning those for which I believe I personally might be able to add the
greatest value, here is my ranking of the top five;    (04)

    1) D1
    2) D2
    3) D3
    4) A3
    5) A1    (05)

On the other hand, please note that I am not sure how much I can 
to any of those items nor am I confident of the ability of the group to
produce meaningful outputs that others can put to good and productive use.
Thus, I encourage the group to factor into its deliberations not only what
the participants believe is the most "important" but, more importantly,
what they believe *they* themselves can produce that others might actually
be willing and able to use -- pretty immediately and directly, without
much, if any learning curve or other dependencies.    (06)

BTW, to the degree that sufficient funding may be available (which is
doubtful), enabling folks to indicate their degrees of interest,
commitment, and expertise is among the prospective enhancements to the
ET.gov site/process.  See "desirable enhancements" item 6 at
http://xml.gov/draft/etgovrequirements.htm as well as the draft 
of elements at http://xml.gov/draft/ETLifeCycleStage2.htm    (07)

With respect to standards, see also desirable enhancements 1, 2, 4, 6.4, 7
& 11 at http://xml.gov/draft/etgovrequirements.htm    (08)
