The standing of subject type in the Subject API is in flux. It started out as an enumerated type applied per-subject, and is becoming a string property of a subject source that gets attached to each subject rendered by that source. I frankly don't recall exactly where it's at in Subject API v0.3.X.

I tried to add an application as a subject, with gsh:

gsh% addSubject("",

However, I got a subject with type="person" and an attribute
of subjecttypeid="application".

What is the purpose of subject type and the attribute subjectypeid?
