Sure, if the ontology in question is able to formalize / capture the 
concept of happiness. But I would say that how exactly this is 
formalized should not be a concern to the ontology-lexicon model as 
different ontologies might conceptualize this concept differently. Other 
knowledge representation systems might even build on prototypes rather 
than set-theoretical semantics. The lexicon-ontology model in some sense 
is agnostic to this.
