Hi Trish,

This is a very informal effort Chris Mungall has been leading - and  
is directly related to the work he, NCI, OBI, BIRN, and others have  
been doing on a shared formalism for expressing ontology-associated  
metadata - or AnnotationProperties - or "speech acts" - depending on  
who you discuss the issue with.  It all comes down to setting a  
context for the ontology content being constructed - and the ontology- 
based assertions/annotations being created using formalisms such as  

So far, this has really just consisted of a few email threads, to the  
best of my knowledge, though I may have missed ongoing follow-up
