Hi,

This seems relevant to the 3-level vs. 2-level discussion (issue 212):

Do we want to distinguish between "things" (that can change over time) and "entities" (pieces of information about things bounded by an interval in time)?  Or do we want to view a "thing" as the all-encompassing entity that all more-specific entities about it specialize?
