If you have the CMap software you can access the source and edit the maps to suit.
Why, having established "as expressed" would you introduce "as realized" to further complicate the reader's ladder of inference? What is the benefit? Remember, we are striving for human interoperability, not pedagogy.
If an ontology is a collection of mapped concepts then a collection of mapped ontologies must be a reinvention of the pernicious notion of System of Systems.
I, too, am not sure ontology can do it all but the sooner we find out the sooner we can solicit ontologists to get on with devising the semiotic transformer that systemists really need.
