What's your definition of "context," Rod?  Do you have something in
particular in mind when you ask about working context management into
linking?    (03)

I would define "context" as "stuff that gives other stuff meaning."  In
this sense, knowledge management is all about context management.  And in
this sense, links are, by definition, something that give context to data.
So, link management itself is a subset of context management.    (04)
