I agree with Olivier, particularly when considering multi-component systems 
(certainly our goal).

Which brings up the questions of priorities? (1-10 each?)

Is it to demonstrate the functionality and value of languages/OWL? 
informatics? universal standards? value of component research? specific 
tools?
And relative to- patient care? lowering healthcare costs? more 
accurate/faster diagnosis? fewer errors? And/or?
