About "prior art" in ontologies:    (01)

  Yes, these are useful, and there are a number of others.  May I suggest
that you add the COSMO ontology to the list of 
Top-level ("upper" or "foundation") ontologies?  It has things in it that
are not in OpenCyc or SUMO, and is intended to contain a comprehensive
inventory of the semantic primitives - as well as other elemens useful to
help build domain ontologies.    (03)

   See: http://micra.com/COSMO  for the ontology and some discussion of it.    (04)
