Dear Pat,


Matthew, I think we agree on just about everything.


[MW] Yes, but it has been a useful critical review of the details.


I also like the idea of treating a possible world simply as a maximal possible-world-part,


[MW] Good.


and I'm happy with your 4-d extensionality,


[MW] Good


though I still don't really see the actual need for it. 


[MW] I value rigor, especially when it reduces choice to almost nothing. If there are choices that can be made then different people will make them differently, so when a large group collaborate in producing an ontology, it will be almost impossible to maintain consistency. Establishing a framework within which a number of trained ontologists can deliver consistent results has always been one of my goals.
