Hate to pile on, but it's hardly the case that any foundational ontology work (as I believe Pat to be talking about) is receiving a "dominating" level of funding.  Judging by the number of paper submissions to conferences with the letter "SW" in their name, there is robust funding for practically *any* semantic-web related activity.  But don't confuse the latter with the former.

Oh, bullshit. All this talk of tribes and domination and so on. Look, 

I havnt had a single penny for my ontological work. It is almost 

impossible to obtain funding for ontology work in the USA at present.
