I thought that was the whole idea behind a "namespace"... a reserved
keyword for the vocabulary ?  (that is produced or definedBy an authority ?)

You need both to make some sense of it all, at times.... a namespace and an
authority who defines it and maintains the vocabulary contained within it.

But it sounds like your asking for something concrete, "link instances"
.... which I am trying to understand but ...ugh... "oncoming Topic
class"... hmm..

Bernard, can you give a quick example ?
