MW: If you are going to do this, that means that you have to absorb all
other ontologies into yours, and it is an ontology. Essentially it is
setting out to do the mapping between all the different ontologies. Your set
of terms might be very useful for this, but you do not actually need yet
another ontology itself - there are enough already.    (04)

MW: By the way, I think that mapping between ontologies is one of the most
important projects to work on, because I think this is the best way to
expose weaknesses in the different ontologies when ambiguities when mapped
to something with different ambiguities.    (05)
