suggest to me that there may be no clear formal distinction between things
and entities, and that the notion of things (aka "Real World Things"?) is
mainly a rhetorical device to explain the intent of the relationships.


I don't think we can start splitting things from entities. An entity is
just a realisation that when we talk about "things in the world" we are
required to make an explicit or implicit characterisation, thus an entity.
