I don't think it's that subtle -- moreover, I don't think I would count your 
interesting example as a case of the same concept being represented by 
different types (or whatever), since it doesn't seem to me that "3D-individual" 
and "4D-individiual" *are* the same concept.  I think all they have in mind are 
cases where the same concept is indicated by different type *names*, e.g., 
"woodchuck" and "groundhog".    (02)
