We discussed this in Prague, but came to the conclusion that since  
it's possible to do

   has-scope(tmdm:subject, 1, *) .

to constrain the overall cardinality this proposal doesn't actually  
add anything, and so we kept the current mechanism.

(What we did do, however, was to remove the distinction between  
nametype-scope, occurrencetype-scope, and associationtype-scope. So  
now the template really is called has-scope. :)
