I have no problems with pragmatism, but why are the characters not RDF
concepts itself? I believe they should be rdf vocabularies for those
who want to reason on them.

One more problem: the states can be polymorphic, as in

> MeasurementID_1="flower color"
> MeasurementValue_1="red"
> MeasurementValue_1="orange"
