Well, that should eliminate any meaningful discussion of standard upper 
ontologies, and most ontology content.  After all, our intent is to 
encode knowledge, and knowledge did not originate after the dawn of 
computers, or with the development of PDF, no matter how much the recent 
academic graduates seem to think so.    (02)

The problem is relevance, not hoariness.    (03)
