I think people should enter the minimum data necessary (blue in my diagram).
Then have programmer types enter the inference rules (red), and finally the
inference engines should be able to answer queries even about the inferred
data (yellow).  Of course if somebody thinks differently and enters some
data that you thought would be inferred,  all the same queries should still
work ... but then, of course, the programmer types will need to enter some
more rules.
