Hi All,

A couple of questions on the structuring relations we talked

- are we going to use "subrelation" to taxonomize qualities (aka
attributes) or do we need a separate "subquality"? E.g., how do
we connect length and height to size?

- are taxonomic links going to be bidirectional? For example, in the
case of instance-of, are we going to list all the instances in
the parent? Or, is this something that is to be derived by the
API/other programs?

PS: I really enjoyed the meetings. They were more exciting and useful
than most of the ontology workshops I have been to.
