[jumping in after a long absence, apologies if I misunderstand any of
the context]

'artefact' is not enough:  the house my sister built herself last year
is eminently artefactual, but it's not a GR.

'intent' is not enough either: my sister was full of intent, the
intent was to build that house and she built that house as the object
of her intention and directly as a result of that intent.

But (and here I come back close to my previously-stated conviction
that FRBR has a crucial role to play in resolving this question),
perhaps "intent to communicate" _is_ sufficient. . .
