This sounds like revisionist history to me, Sandro :-)

Now that we have 2-3 years of experience with M&S and some ontology layers
on top of RDF, the W3C's position on the statement in question is that it is
"M&S's informal ontology"?

Since M&S never mentions ontologies, if there is some type of informal/implied
ontology, will  the RDF Core WG makes it explicit [and clarify the statement
in question]?
