Indeed. However, I guess if it would *help* get through the next step  
to have more argument (from Sandro's perspective), I guess I can  
supply it.

But I do think there is precedent for disregarding obviously kooky  
comments. (And the phrase "extension set" is killing me...there is no  
such thing. Concepts have extensions which *are* sets.)

BTW, this is an ongoing thing (I've even found some WebOnt stuff by  
him!), e.g.,
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/2008Aug/0258.html

Jie, I'm afraid you mislead him a bit (not that's it's hard to do!):
	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/semantic-web/2008Aug/0259.html

I fall back on my account: syntactically restricted first order  
formulae with one free variable :)

(This elides some use/mention issues. And there in lies the real  
trouble with use/mention...it's fine to blur them "in standard ways"  
until someone decides to make a big deal about it :()

Cheers,
Bijan.
