In this example you are using "description" to accomplish "identification", 
which are really two different things.  However, as you appear propose that 
the "description" features are used merely for disambiguation, then the two 
tasks merge.  

This is interesting, since it appears to allow a *description* of something 
to be the value of a property which is part of the description of something else ...
