Kerstin: What part of NCI Thesaurus would you say is a domain model? My understanding is that Barry would refer to it as a "concept system" and not as a domain model / ontology of real world of entities/phenomenon 1)

The way I see that CDISC have used picked concepts from different concept hierarchies in NCI Thesaurus to construct controlled terminologies are also quite confusing. See for example the examples I list in my previously posted slides http://www.w3.org/2007/11/NCIt_and_CDISC_CT.ppt.
