I've been thinking for a while that we need a "Where Do I Put..." 
thread. It will cover suggestions on where to put those fussy little 
things that are not covered in ontological discussions. Do you have any 
of these types of questions?    (01)

I recognize that there are many ways to organize an ontology, but 
clearly if access is by structure, rather than by indexical, then we 
should recognize and promote the more efficient structures.    (02)

Where Do I Put...??
-------------------
1. G§edel numbers and other formulas? (...and are data encoded using 
Church's approach?)    (03)

2. Entities that are pending or which are not ready to be entered in the 
ontology (e.g. entities that have not been validated)?    (04)

3. Element instances that are similar but not of a class (e.g. dead skunk).    (05)

4. Entities by reference (e.g. pointer to a binary file containing a 
song | translation tools | ontology meta-data).    (06)

5. Known unknowns.    (07)

6. Logic maths meta-data (e.g. HOL).    (08)

7. Alternate universals.    (09)

8. Are predicates (and other formula) grouped or striated per type or 
per instance (covers relations and constraints also).    (010)

9. Persistent intermediate findings, intermediate or "scratch-pad" 
proofs that may be of later use, or which may need to be exported 
(should we have a general export structure?).    (011)
