Apologies for the delay in replying. In fact, the BioPortal team doesn't actually create ontologies that show up in the repository. Rather, ontology authors submit them to us. We have a facility -- called Notes -- that allows you to leave comments for the authors. So, if you create an account on BioPortal, log in, and navigate to your term of conern, you can click on "Notes" and leave a note there. The ontology authors will likely see it and can react.

> not all statistical models predict function (maybe just family membership, or the presence of a domain) - so if you can't make an unambiguous assertion about function for a given sequence model, what would be the right evidence code to use if I wanted to assign a code to a feature annotation (i.e. if I wanted to simply state "this domain is found")
