Taking the risk of being annoying I'd also ask, how is NeON's  
Modularization approach different from previously proposed ones? Also,  
regarding Watson, how is Watson an alternative to bioportal. From  
whAt  I have seen Watson does not offer everything bioportal does. The  
methodology propoused by NeON, which is an interestingnpart of the  
prj, how is this being evaluated? What is the size of the active NeON  
community? What are the plans for supporting both Neon editor and  
portal technology?
