Odd.  I don't think of semantics as something I want formalized to the
point where I can calculate intersections.  Not only does it demand a
lot of work, but it may well drive me to produce false clarifications
for the sake of calculation.

Thanks, but sharing data models remains something that sounds great but
is deeply pernicious when examined closely.
