Yep. This looks like good news to me. Well done Markus.  I presume this 
enables more RDF like response structures which is great - though I 
don't have a time to look at it in detail just at this moment I am afraid.

I am sorry that I am still slow on the mapping of elements in conceptual 
schemas to concepts in data sources to response structures within Tapir 
so I will not comment further on how the mapping is done.

Good luck,
