Neologisms are to be avoided like the plague. I'll vote against this document when it comes up in ANSI if this sort of stuff continues in it.

This RM4TM uses the neologism "connectedness" in order to avoid implying that TM Applications must be implemented in such a way that arcs are represented as a data structure. For example, The arc abstraction can be fully honored by the property values of the nodes that serve as its endpoints.
If there is no data structure implied, let's just say that, full stop. Besides, this should be in the TM Application section, reason for the strike. Suggested new language at appropriate location: The topic map graph does imply any data structure for TM Applications. The requirements for a TM Application may be meet using any data structure that the TM Application implementer deems appropriate.
