re. pain vs pain

I am reading some very interesting new approaches to this problem which you
may also enjoy

Look for example at the 'packaged ontology approach'
http://www.cs.iastate.edu/~honavar/Papers/cts06.pdf

3.1. Packages as Ontology Organization Units
In a package-based ontology, the whole ontology is composed
of a set of packages. Terms (such as Dog, Animal)
and axioms (such as Dog v Animal) are defined in specific
home packages.

I like that flexibility in the view of the world, it allows multiple
simultaneous worlds
and views to be possible. Lots of other interesting stuff in collaborative
ontologies there also 
(Not sure where that leaves the axioms, but's thats a problem for some of
us more than for others)
