* Murray Altheim
| In looking over this discussion in retrospect, I think I was thrown
| by the idea of Topic names and subject identity being considered as
| Topic Occurrences, but I realized (rather quickly upon reading Kal's
| message) that I've been using Occurrences as containers for Topic
| properties in my own practice for a long time, and indeed, have both
| implemented properties-as-occurrences in Ceryle and designed the
| Facet PSI set and its implementation as typed Occurrences.

| So on the subject of using Occurrences (internal or external) as a
| means of ontologically assigning properties to a Topic, I think
| we're on the same page.

I'm glad to hear it.
