Does anyone have an ontology of Rough Sets they can present to the group? This is probably a good time to do it. This might actually be the right place, given Azamat's excellent recent comments on our difficulties in reaching a consensus:
The third one, if ontology is a core part of reality (the set of things) or mentality (the set of fundamental concepts) or language (the set of fundamental terms).
Or, if ontology is a Deus (one being, Logos) integrating the World (Pater), Knowledge (Filius), and Digital Virtuality (Spiritus Sanctus).
So, having multiple personhood, a kind of multiple personality disorder, it's both the artifact and not, the captured knowledge and uncaptured knowledge, it's suitable for automated reasoning and not. Thus ontology can exist as a fundamental reality, a model of reality, or expressed as an XML schema, or a Java program (perhaps), or a PDF text, or a relational database, as Ed suggesting...
Sort of like quarks, threads and nondeterministic fsa, but it reminds me of rough sets - the method of modeling actual data distributions as valid outliers scattered over a general theme of structure.
Rough sets would be useful to consider in an ontology that could possibly reach a consensus. After that, we would have better experiences to reach consensus with.

If you meet an Ontology, what should you do?
