(But of course you are free to talk about a record as an entity if you
want to do meta provenance)

However, I believe that *Account* -does- belong to the universe of
discourse and should be identifiable.

just happens to be an entity - so it is more that the attributes
themselves do not belong to the universe of discourse.
