Web Interactions are always about interactions with information resources, be they
LDPCs ( boxes ) and LDPRs ( usually Documents )

Documents speak about things. Things may nor may not be inside boxes. Certainly most
things are neither LDPRs or LDPCs. There are apples, oranges, spiders, cats, meetings,
asteroids, that have been around way before LDPCs have been. These things are not
managed by LDPCs: Information about them is collected in LDPRs.

So 1. Managing documents in LDPCs, given that the documents speak about things
gives you all the tools you need to speak about everything in the known universe
and beyond. LDP is in the end very simple.

The use case people are trying to solve with the propertyXX relations I think needs to
be worked out and described carefully. The the idea would be to find some patterns 
that allow you to  satisfy the use case of adding  relations in connected LDPRs when creating an LDPR.

Since you can do everyting with 1, you can't claim there are more applications in 2.
