[protege-discussion] uri, frames, owl or not

An ontology does not  have to be published and the URI you choose 
doesn't  have to be web based.  The URI you choose can simply  be a name 
for the ontology.  There are some words in the OWL 2 specification that 
an ontology  "should" be  accessible through its IRI but in other places 
it is implicitly understood that this is not a reliable mechanism.
