Sorry, I was using it as an example. Say my wife and I each track our
own accounts separately.. I just used "company" as an example of
sets-of-accounts that have no relation to each other. You cannot have
transactions cross "company" bondaries in a single file. Similarly, a
transaction could not "cross" between my accounts and my wife's
accounts (we would have to have a special "to husband/to wife"
accounts to do these transfers.

Agreed.. Hense my reason for trying to define terminology.

I certainly hope that we can define non-business-specific terminology.
