FYI: OIL was originally developed in the context of the European IST-project
"OnToKnowledge" (http://www.ontoknowledge.org/). Later, it was merged with
DAML to create DAML+OIL, which actually inherited a lot of the ideas behind
the original OIL. I don't think DAML+OIL should be considered the result of
yet another fancy military project.
