Dear Bart, (01)
His real objection is to a fixed ontology rather than a standard one, he
needs to be able to extend the ontology and correct it as time passes, and
his idea of a standard ontology is that you cannot do that. This of course
is not true. For example, ISO 15926 is designed to be extensible, with a
small fixed core that supports that extensibility, and the standards process
allows even that to be updated (though it hasn't been yet in 8 years). (02)
