Since there is no [occurrences] property on a topic map item,
does that mean that conforming applications need not provide
a way to find all occurrences in a topic map? Does it mean
that implementations are free to choose how they provide such
information?  Doesn't that provide less interoperability than
the SAM could provide? Is that a good idea?

The same applies to names and I do think that finding all names
in a topic map belongs to the most basic interactions with 
topic maps.
