Pat,    (03)

The point of the exercise is to respond to Mills Davis' request for 
input (See: 
).  Mills seems to be focusing more on future applications (Although 
Steve Ray is very interested in existing, demonstratable applications.)    (04)

The list, itself, came out of a brainstorming exercise at last week's 
Ontolog call and includes a few follow-up postings to Ontolog with 
other suggestions.  It is not meant to be exhaustive.    (05)

As part of this exercise, Bob and I started to put together a 
characterization framework what helps address some of the questions 
that you pose.  We decided that it was too complex to use for this 
exercise, however, and would likely create more confusion than 
clarity.  I suggest that we consider launching a small project around 
these questions to inventory a more comprehensive range of 
ontology-driven applications and forego ranking them, focusing, 
instead, on describing each "application" in more detail.    (06)
