But that's not how KR languages are generally defined.  "An
interpretation must specify which object in the world is referred to
by each constant symbol."  [IAMA p186].  To say instead that "An
interpretation must specify which objects in the world are referred to
by each constant symbol," well..., I'm not exactly sure of all the
consequences, but it doesn't sound so good to me.
