But seriously, Tim, if we were to pursue this problem, we would need some  
form of unambiguous identifier for "things"... and given the distributed  
nature of the biomedical domain, we'd want to make sure that there was  
some way of resolving that identifier to obtain metadata about it from a  
variety of disparate sources who might have very different information -  
clinical, molecular, demographic, etc...
