I would argue that *** IF *** ontology work products were as accessible as a spell checker then my personal work products would be more accurate & professional.
Plus, I get to train my ontology catcher one word at a time.
I would obviously advocate for a smarter spell checker that groks context (e.g. who I am, what project or task I'm working on, etc.). The OntChecker (tm?) would obviously require a more rigorous administrative infrastructure under the covers.
Burying ontology information in Excel spreadsheets is clearly not a long term maintainable & accessible solution. What happens to the spreadsheet with all its invisible rules, is abandoned by the original author? Specs anyone?
