Ok, so let's describe the intent of how a resource is to be used, let's call
that a "purpose" and sometimes different systems will need different forms
of a resource, let's call that a "nature". So if we label a resource, by
"nature" and "purpose", we will have a mechanism where a system can pick a
resource according to what it needs to do with it.
