Im not sure what that means, but its certainly not ontology as in 'ontology engineering'.
I meant, you were lucky that you only had to go around the knowledge extraction loop once.

Right. So how is it possible to plan for something that you cannot forsee, other than in a general sense trying to stay alert?
I need to read the book, obviously, but I suspect we are at cross purposes. I cannot even imagine what would be a simple test of success at solving an unforseen problem. Unforseen by who, when? Suppose it turns out to be able to do something unforseen, but the designer then tells you they had in fact forseen that and planned for it. Who is to contradict them?
But in any case, why has this got anything much to do with ontology design? Do you feel that ontologies should be designed for unforseen things more than other artifacts?
