Dear Matthew,    (01)

Yes, I would never attempt to propose a new format for the
character strings that represent times and dates:    (02)

But a good ontology for time involves much more than a standard
convention for writing the character strings that are placed between
the double quotes of CL or CGs names.  And it also involves much
more than choosing a 4D or a 3+1 D approach.    (04)

Whenever a good textbook has 2304 categories of processes, you can
be sure that the list is an inadequate approximation to infinity.    (05)
