Far from it! As someone who is gaining traction from the current 
interest in OWL but finding the OWL tools not up to the task of 
presenting business knowledge back to business people (and hence using a 
UML tool), I find this very interesting.    (02)

I see ontology (OWL or otherwise) as fitting into one specific box in 
the Zachman Framework. What is unfortunate is that UML is so wedded to 
OO development that it does not extend naturally into the semantic space 
and so does not cover the whole of the first two columns. However, it is 
extensible.    (03)
