Conceptual inconsistencies with activities/products and exchanges in ecoinvent

Issue #7 new

Current importing does not really make sense - all links are from activities to activities, and flows or reference products are only considered as metadata of an activity. However, a reference product has a different name than an activity, and therefore we can easily get confused writing e.g. exporters.

The current system works, and the calculations are OK, but maybe we want to consider being more explicit or better documenting the current assumptions that more or less disregard product names in exchanges.
