Spoke to Lee today, and he made an observation that
clarified my view of an OHS. He referred to the lower
levels of the OHS as simply a "dynamic repository,"
or if you will a "dynamic object repository" -- with
the "knowledge" being created as the objects are
brought up from the repository.
Such a separation of storage/access and packaging/
assembling makes sense not only in architectural terms,
but in human terms as well, as it allows doc-heads
and IR-heads and ontologists and algorithmers to
meet at a common plane, and deliver their requirements
downwards in a coherent fashion.
(This is not to exclude interface/usability/marketing
requirements. But that's another level.)
