I assume that you intend to use OWL as your modeling language.  If so,  
you should join the specific OWL mailing list, since that handles OWL- 
specific questions.

I would suggest using OWL/RDF files.  That is the most straight- 
forward way to build an OWL ontology.

Start with OWL-DL.

You only need to worry about disjointness for classes that appear in  
your ontology.

But it is good that you are thinking about these issues.  When you  
create your classes, it is good to get into the habit of attaching  
comments to them.  This information would be something good to write  
in the comment field for your Record class.
