Sounds like a good idea to me.

I'll try to spend some time going back-n-forth with Don over the  
weekend to create the list of relevant ontologies, terminologies, and  
classification schemes relevant to the Use Cases.  That will help to  
give us a point of reference.  I'll also look through writeups from  
the BioRDF folks, to get a sense of the entirety of formal resources  
they've worked with.  I know the usual suspects, but I'll try to cull  
some sense of what they think regarding how effective they turned out  
to be in representing the facts they had to cover.

Cheers,
Bill
