I agree. But I would add that this principle applies equally well to everybody involved -- including subject matter experts (SMEs) and application developers.
You can't expect SMEs, such as physicians or geologists, to take a training course in your system before they can use it to do anything useful.
You can expect programmers to look at a description of the API for your system -- but only if it is written in terms of the programming language they are already using, not in terms of some notation you hope they will learn.
Bottom line: Anybody who claims that ontology will make life simpler has an obligation to demonstrate that simplicity in any tools they develop.
