[Sigia-l] The A>B, B>A problem
Is there a name for the problem when, if you are stuck with designing a
simple hierarchy for the web, you have to choose between "Wine > France
> ..." or "France > Wine > ..." and there is no best choice because
users have differing needs? I know this problem has come back in almost
every taxonomy (that is a simple hierarchy) that I have ever done. So I
was wondering if there exists a name for it? Library scientists?
If not, we should probably coin one...
(I'll kick the first person who mentions facets. That's not the question.)
