A learning or training model...

The "domain model" as you put it, is roughly equivalent to a 
vocabulary with an associated set of semantics. So long as you agree 
on the terms, you can communicate, and that is the whole point.

The terms *intrinsically* do *not* have any meaning. Only in the 
context of the interpreter dot hey have meaning, and only if the 
knowledge is shared and agreed upon will useful communication occur.
