Hi All,

I have been wondering for sometime now that why isnt it a popular trend 
to store standard activities of a domain in the ontology and not only 
the concepts, e.g., for the tourism domain, ontologies normally contain 
concepts like Tourist, Resort, etc. but I have not so far come across an 
ontology that also contains the standard activities like searchResort, 
bookHotel, etc. Why is it so? What support is provided in the ontology 
langauges to model the standard activities of the domain as well??
