Re: [higgins-dev] Change to IDigitalSubject

Oops, we were talking about it on the #higgins chat channel, and I forgot it wasn't discussed here.
Well, not much of a debate. I added IResource and ILiteral interfaces sometime back (for attribute value types).  Today I finally got around to fleshing out IResource and noticed for the second time that it's almost exactly like IDigitalSubject (just doesn't have a Context). So rather that duplicating the APIs having to do with attributes, name, and type, I proposed a super-interface for that.
We debated between IObject and IEntity.  I'm open to other names or solutions if they're better.

So I missed this debate -- what's the reason for the change to IEntity?
