Well, that is a strong claim. Can you say more about what exactly is 
lacking in the current standards, that makes them inadequate? OWL-DL 
is certainly limited in expressivity in various ways, but suppose we 
cast the standards net widely enough to encompass Common Logic, i.e. 
first-order logic: what is lacking in this which makes it an 
inadequate foundation for the work these scholars are engaged in? 
What kinds of extension would you envision might provide for a better 
foundation?    (03)
