Subject: [humanmarkup] Base Schema - signal

Hi Everyone,

We're baaack!

This element is a ComplexType, abstract, does not reference other 
elements. I'm not sure, as I am not sure with many other elements, 
whether we want to stipulate that it is not used by other elements, 
although for these three semiotics elements, we may want to give it 
more thought.

It is described/defined as: Human Signal An interruption in a field 
of constant energy transfer. An example is the the dots and dashes 
that pen and close the electromagnetic field of a telegraph circuit. 
The basic function of such signals is to provide the change of a 
single environmental factor to attract attention and to transfer 

I will defer to the final determination of the group, but I think we 
may want to refine this a bit. Oddly enough, I think that could 
result is a shorter description to something like: a perceptible 
change in an environmental factor that can be used to transfer 

In any event, it is also a member of the group of elements that 
shares the attribute group: humlIdentifierAtts.

My trepidation with the concept of use by other elements is that of 
finding a way to specify that while atomistic in the Primary Base 
Schema, all elements in this schema are meant to be used by child 
elements in the succeeding schemata. We might want to say that the 
elements in this schema are intended to be used to derive the 
elements of the Secondary Base Schema, which in turn are meant to be 
referenced by the Application Area-Specific Schemata member elements.
