Certainly feasible. It's a way to begin thinking about a "knowledge"
repository. The reference list includes quite a few papers on knowledge
representation, do any of them shed any light on this possibility?

More importantly, what is the relationship between "knowledge" (where
we want to be focusing our efforts in a year or two, and "documents"
(where we will be focusing our efforts in the immediate future).

What aspects of a document/email system will expedite the development
of a future knwoledge repository? Are the any particular limitations
we need to avoid?
