This is interesting, though it seems irrelevant to this discussion, which is about storing data, not querying it... unless I'm missing something.

Normalization would show the day of a week is an attribute of a date. So:
* An #ask should be able to say ?Date.Weekday
* IOW, a "Date" is a first class object as much as, say, a "Place" is
* IOW, I'd like to see SMW standardize "category:Dates" and its properties
* And I'd like to see the ability to set those properties from a 'container'
object's template
* IMHO, {{#set: page-or-sio-name|propname=value}} would resolve alot of n-ary
* I'm not sure yet how this plays with the (proposed?) Record datatype
(e.g., is the Record datatype a reimplementation of SIO? Can Records be
