IMO ... yes, it  does answer, and I won't go again over them, since
this is getting quite reiterative. I invite you to review the
rationale behind the DU, as the person contact information.

By the way, if can you live at the same time in two places, you either
have magical, special powers, or you are going through an out-of-body
experience .. (just kidding) :P

It's not a matter of adding more fields. It's a matter of understanding
that they are two different concepts and models, that can perfectly
coexist and even complement each other in some cases.

There is always room for improvement, but need to move on.
