It would be helpful if there were an introductory message (an FAQ or a 
Guide to Users or something) that provides guidelines for disambiguating 
some of the overloaded terms that arise in ontology discussions. For 
example, we could use qualified names
  owl:Class, when we are talking about class as defined in the OWL semantics
  rdf:Class, similarly
  vNBG:Class,   type-theory:Class, ...
and especially, provide the normative references where newbies (I 
include myself) can read up to find out what these definitions are.    (01)

Sometimes I don't even know I am using an overloaded term, because I 
have only read references that use the term in a particular meaning.    (02)

Then if I and other newbies use a term that needs disambiguation, 
someone can (gently) remind us to refer to the Guide to Users and 
disambiguate our terms before resubmitting our question.    (03)

Respectfully, Tara    (04)
