* Nikita Ogievetsky
| Almost agree. Only there is a way to put in the model by changing
| 3.32:
| ----------------------------------------
| unconstrained scope 
| the scope used to indicate that a topic characteristic assignment is
| considered to have unlimited validity "within the containing topic
| map".
| ----------------------------------------

I'm not necessarily against this. I'd like to hear input from other
members of the community on this.

I also think that the addition you are suggesting might apply to the
definition of scope as well, since if I say that 

  [fish = "Fish" = "Gurb" / norwegian]

then not only "Fish" is according to me, but that "Gurb" applies in
Norwegian is also according to me. So if we want to do this we
probably also want to do it to scope in general.
