I agree that conceptual modeling is a very important use. I see this more and more in industry, companies get value from ontologies (and even taxonomies) just by having a way to be on the same page, seeing the big picture.
I'm finding the exercise of putting the framework into OWL is a great forcing function for thinking, and reduces ambiguity in communicating to otehrs. A great example of the conceptual modeling.
The OWL version of OAF has nothing on this yet. There are so may ways to slice the pie, I'm still getting my head around it.
