It could also be a combination for a more poweful impression or listing several representations in order to enable different type of devices to deal with it depending on its capabilities (e.g. a device with no screen needs the audio or tactile representation).

Hello Klas,

I'm not really seeing this (yet). They way you put it, isn't the
representation implicit in the type of data that's being linked? As in,
if the [actual data] is X3D we're dealing with a "visual" representation
(of the subtype "3D model") and if it's an OGG container with a Vorbis
stream inside it's an "aural" representation, etc.

Regards,

Jens
