thanks a lot for your email!
I've a couple of clarification questions:

>Consideration for:
>   - representation and use of ontologies across different service domains
Could you elaborate on the requirements?

>   - distributed location of ontologies across the Internet

So a requirement would be that a) Ontologies have a unique identifier (aka URL)
and 2) Ontologies may reference each other?
Could you provide a small, concrete example where this is required?
Maybe even how this could be achieved?

>   - potentially different ontology representations for each ontology
>(ontology translation)
What requirements does this pose?
Could you give small examples?

>   - simple ontology representation, but with capabilities to support
What primitives are needed to support planning?
Could you provide an example? In a pseudo ontology language?
What does simple mean?

Thanks and all the best,
