The audience for an FO containing all the primitives that are needed for
semantic interoperability includes all of the database developers who now
are building their own idiosyncratic conceptual models and could just as
easily (more easily) use a well-established and well-tested set of primitive
conceptual elements to specify the meanings of their domain data elements.
This potential audience is vastly larger than the ontolog forum, but needs
publicly testable examples of use before they will pay any attention.    (03)

I am suggesting that we actually investigate the issue with a proper test
rather than simply assume it is impossible and congratulate each other on
our ignorance.    (04)
