This is not informative.

In fact your example is not a bijection because $(1 , 4)$ and $(3 , 12)$ both map to the same rational $\frac{1}{4}$ yet they are clearly 2 different points in the Cartesian plane.

The reason Trichotomy is lost is because you are dealing with multi dimensional objects. For example , the following object $(1 , 4)$ as a point in the Cartesian plane is multi dimensional , in this case of dimension 2.
