The metaphor is clearly flawed, or else surely UniProt would be depicted in 
the center :-)

You state that "if two ontologies are mapped in a separate mapping file, 
there should be a direct connection between both". Does a simple HTTP-based 
resolver count as a "mapping file"?

Also, a resource such as UniProt, while focussed on proteins, has various 
ontologies that are not restricted to proteins, how to represent that?
