Need to go beyond Flat model for Entites and Dictioraries. Build custom Ontologies.

Right now we have a flato model for Entities, that is, by the way, not so well paired with dictionaries.

Why don't we have the possibility to design taxnomy trees, and define 'synonyms' for each node expression (this will substitute Dictoinaries). Then Human annotation would identify a Node in the Taxnonomy. this would be very more powerful for modeling specific domains.
