> This should contain a short motivation of the use case, including a
> description of the application context and why it is relevant to specify
> the meaning of words with respect to a given ontology in the context of
> the application.

> II. Description of the use case
>
> This section should describe the use case in more detail, specifying
> what the lexicon-ontology interface would need to look like from the
> point of view of the application and how the lexicon-ontology interface
> is exploited in the context of the given application. If available, the
> ontology for the application should be briefly described.

> III. Limitations of existing models
>
> This section should discuss existing models and their limitations with
> respect to the needs of the application in question.
>
> IV. Example
>
> This section should provide a concrete example illustrating what kind of
> knowledge should be stated in the lexicon-ontology interface from the
> point of view of the application and how it would be exploited by the
> application.
>
> V. Requirements
>
> This section is optional and might already advance concrete requirements
