Your example details exactly what I was imagining. Thanks for providing such
a clear explanation.

I especially appreciate your choice of words: purpose and nature! Words like
"type" need to be wiped from our vocabulary.

I'm assuming that you intend for a resource's purpose to be identified by
its xlink:arcrole attribute and its nature by its xlink:role attribute, no?
