I also did some experimental SQL implementation of TM with unmerging
In my case each TM construct has additional information - set of
"sources". It allows easily
to unmerge full topic map. It also helps to unmerge topics.
SQL allows efficiently filter by source.
I suggested at some point to include this feature into SAM but...
we probably need more experimental work this area.
