thanks for your persistence in this. It's a real uphill
battle at buildingSMART. Very few people can get their heads
around Open Repositories, or even Ontologies. However, one
good thing is since nothing is there, nothing is broken yet
either. Having a decent functional Reference Architecture,
and a clearly defined role for the buildingSMART data
dictionary (bsDD) especially for Ontologies will be useful.
Background information is here http://dev.ifd-library.org/index.php/Ifd:IFD_in_a_Nutshell
example: bsDD (formerly International Framework for
Dictionaries IFD) is not... a meta ontology. IFD can
hold several ontologies in it structure, but is in itself not
ontologies could live at OOR, but the updating, cyclical,
definitions could live at bsDD. The Reference Architecture
needs to set forth these connections and requirements.

I skimmed the
Program and did not find OOR references - could be a quie
different level of analysis.
Thanks for the
eads up. I wonder if a digital asset management program such
as ISLANDIA (Drupal * Fedora) should be evaluated by
standards groups now trying to get their arms around DITA
(Such as Ensign at OASIS).
Perhaps even the
building SMART alliance might find it usful to better track
OR and OOR.??
