Does it say so in the prose? I realized that the spec
was an example pretty late in the game. Even so, it's
not very easy to find the relevant bits of markup if
you have to hunt thru the markup of the whole spec.

Besides... that doesn't work very well if you want to print
the thing.

I'll take a look presently...

I saw that... it doesn't mesh well with using RDDL purposes
as RDF properties. Hmm...

Nary relationships are often awkward...
