the true root of GO

Dear All,

I'm not cutting edge with the recent GO developments, so I may have missed some important discussion - please forgive me ...  The "historial" root of GO was always "gene_ontology" (GO:0003673) which is now an obsolete term (since when?). What was the reason to change the dummy root of the DAG from 'gene_ontology' to 'all'?

Is this an indication for a trend to incoorperate other independent branches and different kinds of classifications/namespaces (in addition to MF, BC and CC) into GO, and to striclty provide these branches in separate files rather than one file with an artifical dummy root?

	kind regards,
