What does decontextualize mean?

To decontextualize means to remove any KB or KRS-specific data structure from a value. In particular, when you decontextualize a value, any reference to frame objects are replaced by KRS-independent frame handles and all values outside the standard set of OKBC data types that have no interpretation outside kb will be replaced with remote-value references. Any frame references that are the result of an KRS-specific mapping of a canonically named frame will be replaced with the canonical name.
