Term "Configuration"

Let's see if I can rephrase this more clearly:

Configurations are some collection of objects and relationships which hold
over them.

Configurations /can/ include syntax term trees when considering the terms
as the objects in the configuration, but configurations have nothing to do
with representations as such. In other words, configurations are not
fundamentally representations or expressions.

This is importantly related to the fact that I specified that
Configurations are what Specifications describe. You seem to be making
points about "extensions" and "intensions" based on wanting to talk about
specifications instead of the configurations themselves.

Is this more clear?
