Not really related to your direct point here, but this reminds me. At
present, the category system seems to imply that people from
Dresden are also Alpine countries and categories requiring diffusion.
It seems to me that we need a mechanism to differentiate between
direct inheritance (A is an instance of B) and relatedness (A is
within group B but is not an instance of B itself).
I guess this is a roundabout way of saying I don't think this will be
worked out until we get Semantic MediaWiki.
