If that's true, then that's GREAT!
However, I keep stumbling over a problem in my own mind. (Maybe it's
just too obvious for me to see it.) Using your defined terms, please
explain the usefulness and/or purpose -- in terms of how it furthers
the cause of reliable, vendor-neutral information interchange -- of
declaring that a real or conceptual object exists, in the absence of
any interchangeable definition of what that object is, or what
constraints it must conform to in order to be processable.
