 thanks for your input.

 Do i understand it correctly when I say that your "triplet" physically is an item's child
node named "ClassifiedByCategory", having a prop named "CategoryName" with the value of actual
category name?

 Dunno about pleasing lords of evils, but maybe you can model it with a triplet: source >
relationship > target. In your case source is the "item", relationship is "classifiedUnder"
and target is "category". You'll have one of such triplet per item associated in a classification.
Or with references, where your "classification" nodes have (virtual) item children where each
of those children is a reference to the real "item" node. Hope this helps. On Thu, Aug 16,
