Lynn is correct.  I made a confusion between Bill's paper and one by Ron
Brachman, and came up with the wrong name for both.

Ron's paper 

@Article{brachman:concept,
 title=		"What's in a Concept: 
		 Structural Foundations for Semantics Networks",
 author=	"Brachman, Ronald J.",
 journal=	"International Journal of Man-Machine Studies",
 volume=	9,
 number=	2,
 month=		mar,
 year=		1977,
 pages=		"127--152"}

also has some very good ideas on (not) confusing representational
constructs and non-representational tags.
