Ian said OIL was heavily influenced by XOL, which is XMLized OKBC.  The 
XOL reference is:

Karp, Peter D. and Chaudhri, Vinay K. and Thomere, Jerome F. XOL: An 
XML-Based Ontology Exchange Language, Technical Report 559. AI Center, SRI 
International, 333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025, Jul 1999.

Frank's name was on both, so I trust his comments re: b.  However, 
SHOE very definitely did contribute to DAML, so that one is very much 
correct
