First, all the major versions of logic and kn. rep. that deal
with contexts provide the option of naming a context.  Among
them are Cyc, conceptual graphs, IKL, and many others.    (06)

But it's not a prerequisite, since the same abstraction ability
can be achieved with lambda expressions and combinators.    (07)

And as I said, the ability to find knowledge associatively is
even more important than the option of calling it by name.    (08)
