    Regarding John Sowa's suggestion of a collection of modules, I question if it is possible to achieve semantic interoperability with this approach, since we will certainly have n-squared modules?

I also meant to endorse the following contribution from John Sowa at http://colab.cim3.net/forum/ontac-forum/2005-11/msg00033.html
"Recommendation:  Shift attention from the unsolvable problem
of building, merging, and coordinating global world views to
the task of developing an open-ended collection of modules
that can be selected, assembled, and tailored for particular
tasks or collections of tasks
