I think it is even worse than that.  Even when the CCTS group decided to
limit their context qualifier set to only 8 context aspects, they still had
an almost infinite explosion of context.  If you took 8 singular contexts
and had only 300 enumerated values for each one, the number is so large no
one group could ever possibly list all the combinations in a lifetime
without computers.  To add to that confusion, then throw in the fact that
context modifiers in CCTS could have ranges and more than one selection from
the enumerated list and it doesn't take long to realize the system simply
won't work for large scale practical applications.    (04)
