All, please bear with me. There might be others here who
share my views.    (01)

1. The 7094 was not the first computer I worked on, it was the 2nd
    3rd and 4th.    (02)

2. The threads are getting increasingly difficult to follow,
    likewise the gratuities.    (03)

3. Discussions of implementation languages and their constraints
    fog the discussions of functionality. I am not as much concerned
    about the lack of professional rhetoric as I am professional
    content.    (04)

4. Form vs function has been discussed extensively in other
    literature and it is only the first level down in taxonometric
    entry in an ontology. It looks like working down 3-4-5 layers
    is NP-I.    (05)

5. Is there a wiki or another tool that could be used to diagram
    the discussions?    (06)

6. There are many terms being used that have parochial meanings
    and which are not found in the classical discussions of
    ontologies. Would it be possible to publish a lexicon at a
    minimum? Again, this might be work that fits into a wiki.    (07)

While I am being critical, it is not my intention to offend. It
just seems like there have been a myriad of emails and little
substantive progress. It seems like time for a meta-discussion.    (08)
