Ah, right, I think I'm starting to see what you mean and, if so, that 
we're actually in agreement.

To continue my earlier example, the data about a bottle of 2000 St 
Emillion Grand Cru is clearly about that particular product. Now, I 
might, as a publisher of information about that wine, also say that my 
data is only applicable if you are in a branch of Carrefour or Wal-Mart. 
In that case, the publisher is setting two different criteria and both 
need to be true before the data is relevant.

As I like to think in terms of angle brackets I end up with something 
like this:

     <location>any branch of Carrefour or Wal-Mart</location>
     <text>Delicious. Buy it</text>

If the two conditions in the <criteria /> element are met, then and only 
then does the description apply.

For me, the trigger is that the two criteria have been met. The data 
remains static.
