Collegues,
Such type triples have more deep rootes. We, for example use SPV triple
(Subject -Property-Value) where "Property" has very wide meaning including
Attribute type Property.
And Subject has very wide meaning too, including possibilities for the
Second Order Logic (we follow the EPISTLE Core Model direction -
www.epistle.ws ).
And Value has very wide meaning too (we follow the Measurment Theory
direction).

Leonid
