MW: There are two elements to ISO 15926:    (03)

1. The EXPRESS Language Specification. Most people just see the diagrams and
might think that there is not a computer interpretable form, but EXPRESS is
first a text language, and the EXPRESS-G is just a graphical representation.
Translating this into OWL is however more than just a direct translation of
the EXPRESS into OWL. It is also about how the EXPRESS was used, and how
those usages are best translated into OWL. I believe Johan Kluwer of DNV
worked out the algorithm to do this. I think this is what Chris is referring
to.    (04)

2. The textual definition of the entity types and relationships in the data
model where hand written, but to a mostly regular pattern. I suspect this is
what John is referring to.    (05)
