“I could even add, taggin is FAR inferior for heteroclite data, whilst outlining is just a little bit inferior for unified data, but that might come as aggressive.”

All the more so since for unified data, outlining is not self-contained, but then, down from its very second “sorting” criterion, must rely either on cloning (not elegant) or on its adversary, tagging. So the “just a little bit inferior” supposes the existence of cloning or tagging within the outliner, whilst tagging “does it all”, in this context.

So, the outliner concept alone, for the “unified” task, is not even viable. But I think it’s rather instructive to see (cf. the two threads on that subject) how inferior tagging is for heteroclite data (and that many people do not even see this easily), and that on the other hand, outlining needs additional concepts for even starting to become functional for unified data.

Most people, most of the time (and every discussion on that subject amply shows this), don’t make that clear distinction (neither did I), so it’s a good thing to have investigated both tasks in the end.

I called this “standardized” data, “unified data”, but there’s the very important aspect of “EXCLUSIVE DATA”, which is the core aspect here.

This means, you need the dataset for one customer, OR for some other customer, whilst in the “heteroclite” data / “material” / whatever you call it, it’s MULTIPLE COMBINATIONS.

That’s the criterion by which you choose tree (and then clones) vs. tagging/db.

Details of the superiority of the tree concept for the TO-BE-COMBINED data here: “Surfulater PrevGen on bits, again” =

I hadn’t been aware of X1 having brought out a new version in 2013, so perhaps they even resolved their OL probs, and that would very probably make it the very first choice for pdf indexing, from my totally guessing pov here.

Thanks to PIMfan, I reconsidered RN.
