Unfortunately the existing languages were developed and documented 
for quite different purposes and quite different communities. Their 
definitions do not satisfy the sorts of standards placed on ontology 
work -- sometimes because they are confused; sometimes because they 
are defining terms (like 'class') as these terms are used in 
logico-linguistic contexts, rather than in ontological contexts.
