I agree with the above completely. In particular, since Snomed-CT
is currently represented in Ontylog, which is a poor cousin of OWL, there might
be multiple OWL encodings possible for a given Snomed-CT assertion. It would be
instructive to see the criteria you chose to make your choices and trade-offs.
