I think I "got" sources, but I agree with Stephan: They're hard to work
with in the common case. It would be great if they became easier. I'm
looking forward to the open-sourcing of that component!


Interesting. I'll probably revert to vocabularies, but keep a close
eye on Fred's component. I never particularly had a problem with
vocabularies, but I did think there were probably ways to streamline
their use, and I kind of assumed that's what sources would do.

Sources are "purer" because they don't mix the data source with its representation (vocabularies require terms). But that also makes them harder to set up.
