In the context of Topic Maps I have used traits to extend the behaviour of the base class TM. One typical example would be TM::Graph which extends the basic behaviour of the base class by interpreting a topic map as a graph. Another example is TM::Tree which adds functionality to project trees into a topic map (typical pedigree stuff), and also TM::Bulk adds more methods.

The idea of Topic Maps is essential to enable dynamic information logistic. This requires a system that understands the context of the user to provide relevant informations and options automatically. Therefore semantic analysis is needed organizing content in a dynamic net structure.
