of course with full inferencing everywhere there is no problem. But then we reduce
the number of people who can participate to start off with. And we risk having issues
getting people to understand why things sometimes work and sometimes don't.

Still we can perhaps leave those relations in the machine readable ontologies - marked as deprecated - 
for a lot longer, so that robots with inferencing can know how to adapt from one to the other. It is just that
anyone who is writing software will prefer the cert:key relation.

How is that?
