My point is that there is an unavoidable and inherent subjectivity to all expressions of how things “are” in the world (to a greater or lesser extent depending on how the _expression_ was created) and it’s a misguided to think that one can unequivocally assert how things “are”. 




Yes, that paragraph is worth repeating.  So every employee in the enterprise has a subjectivity (and therefore an operational ontology) that expresses her unique viewpoint of the world, of which the enterprise is just one part.  Leveraging her ontology onto the enterprise ontology is the right design for knowledge workers’ semantic systems.
