I would tend to agree.

From what I've seen there is a lot of effort wrestling with human-to-human language.

But the human-to-machine side is large ignored.


MOVE <something> to M0101


MOVE <something> to MSTR-POL-NO

accomplish EXACTLY the same thing.

In the human-to-machine domain, typically much/most of the actual context has been stripped out.

Without a whole lot of additional context, it's going to be difficult to unequivocally state that M0101 and MSTR-POL-NO are or are not the same thing.

But when doing human-to-human very often there will be huge contextual clues... NYTimes, Business section... etc.
