I don't know why you repeated those points to me, since I have
never raised any objections to them:    (02)

That's fine.    (04)

I never objected to any of those points.  I was merely pointing
out that in most cases where two agents interoperate, they
only need to align the intersection of their ontologies that
is relevant to the task.  Using STEP for that subset is quite
reasonable.    (05)
