[protege-owl] Query about constructing an ontology based on received OWL-DL fragments on your behalf

Hi Thomas

> Timothy's description is an excellent pointer to locality-based modules which are currently supported by the OWL API, but not yet by a Protégé plugin. The most convenient way to extract them is probably via the web service:

Excellent resource.

Perhaps this is a silly question/comment (and while not a research area of my own) but I presume its 
not trivial to extract the minimum set of axioms, classes, individuals and property relations 
required to describe a given module. What I mean is, it may not be easy to know when to stop adding 
knowledge about a particular concept or individual for example within a module without ending up 
adding the entire ontology.

I am looking forward to exploring OWL-2 via Protege 4 and OWL-Java API. What had previously stopped 
me was the use of SWRL and SQWRL that I applied to my own area of security research.

Many thanks,
