However, the dynamic nature of domain knowledge forces knowledge engineers to constantly modify KOS, to keep them up to date and useful.
In this context, the maintenance of mappings affected by KOS evolution still remains an open research issue.
The book contained examples of Hughes's handwriting.
At Common Law, an instrument disposing of Personal Property was called a "testament," whereas a will disposed of real property.
Over time the distinction has disappeared so that a will, sometimes called a "last will and testament," disposes of both real and personal property.
The persons who inherit under the will are proponents of the will and defend it against such an attack. If the people who oppose the admission of the will to probate are successful, the testator's estate will be distributed according to the laws of descent and distribution or the provisions of an earlier will, depending on the facts of the case.
Competent Testator A competent testator is a person who is of sound mind and requisite age at the time that he makes the will, not at the date of his death when it takes effect.
In addition, the examiners concluded that the will was a crude forgery. The right to dispose of property by a will is controlled completely by statute.
Nevertheless, it took a seven-month trial and millions of dollars from the Hughes estate to prove that the will was a fake.

Since the 1970s, many states have adopted all or parts of the Uniform Probate Code, which attempts to simplify the laws concerning wills and estates.
If a person does not leave a will, or the will is declared invalid, the person will have died intestate, resulting in the distribution of the estate according to the laws of Descent and Distribution of the state in which the person resided.
Because of the importance of a will, the law requires it to have certain elements to be valid.
Anyone over a minimum age, usually 18, is legally capable of making a will as long as he is competent.
A person under the minimum age dies intestate (regardless of efforts to make a will), and his property will be distributed according to the laws of descent and distribution.
Although this problem appears relevant for many different computer science fields, ranging from database to artificial intelligence, literature has so far only superficially addressed it to enable more flexible, automatic and precise solutions.
