My bad... denotes should not be functional. Reference should be still
functional as there should be exactly one sense of a lexical entry in the
ontolex model for each ontological entity it denotes. (By the definition of

I did not actually say anything about Meaning,  Expression or Reference ;)

LexicalEntry and LexicalSense can be defined so precisely that they are
disjoint and I think we should do this. Meaning and Reference are
superclasses and so we can remain ambiguous about the disjointness of
Meaning and Expression. As for reference, it is certainly conceivable that
a lexical entry could be the reference of another lexical entry so I agree
this should not be disjoint
