The term 'foundation ontology' is one that Pat Cassidy
was using, and I adopted it for a couple of reasons:
1. Several people were already using it.
2. It is sufficiently different from "upper ontology'
to indicate that there is something significantly
different from what was being proposed before.
I have no strong preference. Does anyone else have any
suggestions for a name that avoids confusion and has
a good acronym?
