I agree.  Actually, in the external communications there ~should be no~
distinction,  this should be left to the choice of the implementor of a
internal data structure.

To help make my decision (which is now wavering to identifying the
statements) I made another mentograph to rebut Murray Altheim assertion that
"There's no way torepresent the variability of one's relationship to the
lily".  You can see from digram [1] that there is not a whole lot of
difference between the different tuple formats proposed.

Thank you for that excellant summary.
