> Clarification: use of Schema namespace aliases within URLs
> ----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: ODATA-847
>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-847
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData CSDL, OData URL Conventions
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_ERRATA02
>            Reporter: Evan Ireland
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: V4.0_ERRATA03
> CSDL spec section 3.4.2 states:
> "An alias is only valid within the document in which it is declared; a referencing document has to define its own aliases with the edmx:Include element."
> Protocol spec section " System Query Option $select" states:
> "The value of the $select query option is a comma-separated list of properties, qualified action names, qualified function names, the star operator (*), or the star operator prefixed with the namespace or alias of the schema in order to specify all operations defined in the schema."
> So now we see that aliases can be valid/referenced outside their defining document.
> If a URL uses an alias, is it limited to using an alias defined in the outermost CSDL document, i.e. it a URL prohibited from using aliases defined within referenced CSDL documents? If it is not so limited, then how do we resolve ambiguity of potentially multiple-defined aliases (defined with two different meanings in referncing and referenced CSDL documents)?
