Do I feel correctly, that this model lacks language? If we have model that we also must have language to use it at least for 2 purposes: data input and data selection.

This article doesn't seem encyclopaedic to me. It seems to be describing one person's research, which has not entered the mainstream of computer science. At least not under this name: from what I can see there are no substantive differences from the model used for example in Abrial's Data Semantics back in the 1970s, or for that matter more recently in RDF. It also seems to ignore the fact that the same name has been used before in 1971 for model similar to the relational model: see http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1115897 Mhkay (talk) 13:31, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Also it makes statements which seem to say more about the author's misunderstanding of other data models that they do about this data model (though if these statements come from the author of this data model, perhaps these misunderstandings motivate its design). Case in point: since when is the relational model "record-based"? I'm not so sure this statement is a useful description of the object database model either, but I'll defer to someone who knows that model better on that. --Ericjs (talk) 00:51, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
