Tony Markatos responds:

Let me quantify "many" -- 99.99%

For complex systems, the level of analysis required just to standarize terminology (a primary prerequisite to clear and concise documentation) is often monumental. After having done such, you are just a small step away from creating a complete (logical) data dictionary (something that NOBODY has ever done).

So few understand this; fewer care.
