That is why I believe that it is premature to choose one ontology
that is canonized as an official standard.  My recommendation has
always been that we should develop a systematic classification
(a lattice or at least a partial ordering) of all ontologies that
meet minimal criteria for coherence.    (04)

Then the choice between them should be determined by the
marketplace:  the users can choose which one(s) are most
appropriate for their problems.    (05)

Re judgmentalism:  Proponents of Marxism, Freudianism, and
Objectivism are among the most judgmental people on earth.    (06)
