I like this idea a lot. It seems to me quite possible for a model of dolphin intelligence.

The reason for this is that some researchers believe that dolphins may use echolocation to also communicate with other dolphins. So for example, rather than having a sound symbol that represents "shark", the will instead simply mimic and send another dolphin the sonar return of a shark. It would be the equivalent of people communicating by instantly drawing realistic pictures to one another.
