| So we develop an ontology for a complex standard (like ISO 8879),
| that is just the first step towards being able to answer the
| non-ontological question of useful presentation. Correct?

I agree with it, at least.

| Should our work be an example of taming that sort of complexity for
| useful presentation?

Certainly it should be a goal that people can produce useful
information navigation solutions from ontologies (+ instance data)
based on our work (a requirement?). Is that what you meant?
| The more I write on this post I realize that what I am asking is a
| user interface engineering question, one that I personally not
| qualified to answer. Don't know about the experience of the other
| members of our group in that regard but it is probably beyond the
| scope of our effort. 

Presentation is certainly beyond our scope, but our work should be
usable as the foundation for useful presentation. Maybe that is the
real requirement?

| Developing the ontology will be difficult enough and perhaps the
| vendors of topic map engines will use their presentations of that
| ontology to illustrate their skills at constructing userful
| interfaces to complex data.

That may well be. :-)
