One of the problems in the on-going discussion about representation, is 
our tendency to want to invent rather that adopt.

The more details about representation that we create -- rather than 
select something existing and widely deployed with a long history -- the 
more we need special software to process it.  The more we need special 
software, the more we endanger long-term viability.
