They are missing the point, since this isn't really possible amongst 
cognitive beings. In short, that's antithetical to the very notion of 
"cognitive being" and "context fluidity".    (02)

All we can do is provide unique identifiers that denote entities in a 
given world view (or situation).  IMHO. Ultimately, we can cross 
reference with entities (denoted using other identifiers) in other world 
views as one discovers and comprehends those world views. Basically, as 
our world view expands we discover new insights etc..    (03)
