Exactly!! So if we don't reuse (which is not mandatory), then let's just
employ reasoning.

Right about what? reusing?

Didn't you just say that if you don't reuse, we can employ reasoning? So
what is the problem?


I see it as a business opportunity.

Problem: I'm a webmaster and I want to integrate with facebook, twitter,
search engines. That means that I have to add all these tags and duplicate
my data to keep all of these services happy. I don't want to do that. But I
do want to have integration with these services. What can I do?

Solution: Service FooBar will automatically do the "duplication" for you.
Choose your favorite vocabulary, just tag your data once, and we will do
the rest.

Service FooBar does the reasoning.
