Well, triples are bidirectional, so calling this "the opposite way of 
SPIN" is IMHO too strong. And of course it would be straight-forward to 
extend SPIN with a couple of properties to inform an execution engine 
about which constraints to run, if people find that helpful. Instead of 
making it appear the "opposite" I'd encourage you to think about the 
commonalities and how to harvest and merge the best ideas from all
