I don't know.

That puzzles me, as I'm sure I can implement the solution I had in mind, so 
it can't be that magical.

As far as I can figure, Mike is considering building an application using 
RDF.  This is good news, and to the extent that I can, I'd like to 
encourage and support him.

Mike has asked for guidance on a specific *practical* problem, and building 
on suggestions from others, I've suggested two possible solutions, with 
different characteristics.  Both will work, but one may suit his
