Hi Peter, (02)
I find this definition perfectly acceptable. (03)

While I found the discussion today quite interesting, I'm not sure how
important it is to our going forward to define registry or ontology
registry itself. I think there was a consensus understanding in general
of the distinction between a repository and a registry -- if we agree on
a definition for a repository (which is our end goal, if I understand
the project correctly :-), then perhaps we do not need to belabor a
definition of ontology registry as well? (05)
