I fixed the MONDO Design document to have a central web page that allows 
you to look at the TOC and download subsets of the document.  The page is at:
All the links are now directed here but the direct "mondoDesign.pdf" file 
is in the same location and still works.

The PDF file has also been broken into smaller subsets of approximately a 
chapter or two.  Each of the subsets is ~70K instead of the full 400K 
document.  My apologies for not doing this the first time, especially to 
anyone who had problems with downloading a single large file.

The Design Document web page also contains an "additions" section which 
will have new document sections that have not yet been integrated into 
the main version.  This is to keep the main document from having Chapters 
changing every few days and to make new additions more visible.

The newest addition and its first paragraph is:

Modeling and Implementing, Objects and Recipes
Recipes describe how to build knowledge though creating objects.  An 
important aspect to working with knowledge is to be able to model it.  So 
far, we have assumed the model of our knowledge preexists and only exists 
in the ObjectBase's DomainModel.  Our other choice is to explicitly 
describe the Model outside of the ObjectBase and then configure the 
ObjectBase based on that model.  With this approach, information will 
describe its own model (or models) and we will be provided with a lot 
more capabilities to automatically and universally understand that
