yes no doubt, the point is that really that it makes no sence to say OM
isn't using ontolgies. It isn't using RDF/OWL but that's not the same
thing, That was a first, automatic, attempt to see what could be
extracted into owl, you can no doubt extract more,

yes exactly, that's all it was intended to do in that case, ground teh
symbols in rdf land so the other more monet-specific (math web service) 
ontologies could refer to them.
