| The purpose of facets in 13250 was, in my opinion, to encourage
| subject schizophrenia. At certain points of time you are only
| interested in a certain subset of the associations between subjects
| - otherwise your map becomes too cluttered. I want a way of saying
| "show me the subset of associations which conform to this facet of
| the world view". If proxification is used in place of representation
| as the process controlling bernersleeification , can I still do
| this?

We're really just talking about the terminology here, so none of what
the technology *does* would change in any way. It's just what we call
the different things that may change.

I'd say that the main ways to do what you suggest are scope and
annotations on the association types.
