The observation below is in an important one, that ontologies, models etc are 
not created and used equally.
Without explicitly considering the Agent/Performer Perspective (the ones that 
are Target users),
even the best ontology/model may fail to deliver value.     (01)

An example, not all people in an organisation thinks about / address Product 
the same way. 
Is this best addressed by one ontology on several interlinked? 
Not sure which scenario prevails today but Ive seen plenty that seems to 
address more than one Perspective.    (02)
