As stated in yesterday's OOR teleconference, the BioPortal resource model is heavily biased toward class-based representations and that this bias permeates the BioPortal architecture.  There was a bit of discussion that we should try to identify a language independent API if possible.  Perhaps the best place to start with this is to identify a set of repository resources that are general enough to be applicable to any language.  Once we have a list of the resources we can design a set of operations on these resource (i.e. the API).  I think the following is a starting point:

1) ontology 
2) module (not to be confused with a CL module)
3) axiom 

Does this sound reasonable?  Can anyone think of some others?
