Please feel free to close issue 140, however this plays out.

Separately, I have a slight concern with the phrasing I see here that might 
suggest that all (entity) attributes are characterization (in light of the 
discussion to not discriminate between characterizing and non-characterizing 
attributes) - I'll need to look at the wider context to form a definite view, 
but I was thinking that something like:

Attribute-value pairs are introduced to associate additional information with 
entities and activities.

Might avoid the possible confusion.
