Like... the same "McDonald's" can be either <name> or <orgName>,
depends on an analysis
("The fastfood chain called 'McDonald's'." vs "McDonald's goes China.")

OK. So the practice is, I should define person (and place, etc.) in the header,
give them each with ID. Then these IDs will be use in WHO of <q>, and
KEY of <name>, <persName>, etc. Right ? Thank you :)
Ah.. one point. So does it legal to use..
That guy is <persName key="ART">Arthit</persName>.
His nickname is <name type="person" key="ART">Art</name>.
I'm not sure about the logic, but does it possible to interpret that
"Arthit" is a person, and "Art" is a name -- so they cannot use the
same key, as they are different in type (thus different 'object') ?
Or this just totally a misconception. And the usage above is just correct.

Thank you so much, it is :)
