| But to me the "unconstrained" scope caries the topic map
| (authorship) context.

I think that's fair enough, but it's difficult (and unnecessary) to
represent this in the model (or the prose), since there is no notion
of an author in topic maps. You don't know who the author of any given
piece of information is, so we can't really add this in the model. It
has to be up to individual users to apply this themselves when they
use someone else's topic map. (Or their own, for that matter.)
