Given that we have
* Unlimited numbers of key/value pairs per object
* Recursivable objects (relations of relations of themselves)
* RDF triples (relation roles means you can say subject A is a
predicate B to object C)

technically there's nothing that you can't represent in OSM! Whether
you'd want to or not is a different matter.

Cheers,
Andy
