Reflexivity in general cannot be captured by the use of the term reflexive to describe command grammars and all control verbs.

The term has been used in a number of other contexts with non-obvious relationships to the reflexive intranet. An ultra-reflexive intranet must reconcile these uses.

In financial market usage, for instance, George Soros says it is "what beliefs do is alter facts". This generallys stated argument may lack some intellectual integrity, and has in general failed to convince most of the boosters of neoclassical economics, e.g. at IMF.
