You wrote: "Will a predicate C be able to link two nodes A and B that may themselves be predicates?"
I can't see (and maybe it's just because I haven't come across a tangible example) where a Predicate can cleanly link two other Predicates together.
As of now, we follow a simple rule that uses basic sentence structure to validate the integrity of the Relationship. The sentence structure is:
SENTENCE: "Instance of Subject (or Source) Node" is related as a/an "Predicate/Descriptor" to, of, or for "Instance of Object (or Target) Node".
If you try to use a sentence structure as the validation constraint for the binding of a Source Predicate to a Target Predicate through a Binding/Descriptive Predicate, it becomes hard to create a readable/meaningful sentence.
Would you have any clear examples to prove otherwise? I'd be very interested in learning about them.
