And the node element seems superfluous too. Why not just have graph contain
other graphs? (01)
The relationship between a relend and the composite values is a bit strange
Ditto edge, rel, and relend.
There are distinctions there I don't understand, but it is likely that I am
missing too much information about their agendas. (02)
I do like the fact that edges and relations can contain graphs though.
In GSIX an edge/relation contains graph(s) within a context. (03)
