I get self describing homonym-free terminology. Whenever I stumble over such
a term, I can get it's definition in one or several natural languages
automatically by dereferencing the term. I can also be sure that the 
definition I get is the only and authoritative definition for this term.    (03)

If I am lucky, I may also get some restrictions or facts for the term but your
question excluded this case.    (04)
