Ah yes, I remember now. All my hens will get eaten by foxes.

Dimitre, I have a great deal of respect for your opinions, and I think there
is probably a case to be argued here. In this instance I don't think you
argue it very well. I would be tempted to ask you to put together a more
careful justification of why you think the group is taking the wrong
approach, and to submit it. However, while all comments are welcome, I think
you would be wasting your time. We're now at the stage where people don't
want to reexamine the fundamental data model unless it's found to contain
very serious holes; and I think that while it isn't perfect, it is workable.
