  1. All relationships except for s3db:operator (last row) are s3db:relationship (first row). The inversion of RDF subject, predicate and object in relations 5-10 may appear capricious at this point but it will simplify the identification of automata for the propagation of s3db:operator states in the next section. Specifically, it will allow the definition of Equation 3 such that the direction of the arrows in Figure 2 is the same as the propagation of s3db:operator states.
