Subject: Transition: ACC -> ABIE


The topic of this e-mail is "How To Create an BBIE from a BCC?".
Consider CCTS p.12, where we have an ACC (top left) called "Person.
Details" (I'm ignoring the other ACC at bottom right, for simplicity).

On p.16, this ACC has become "US_Person. Details".

So the question is: how could this happen in the registry?

(Please note: The actions described below would be performed by tools
that utilize the registry, but it is important for us to understand
these potential transitions)

I believe there are 2 aspects to this transition:

(1) Classification of an ACC according to one of the 8 Context
Categories (in this case, it was "Geopolitical" Context)

(2) Adoption/modification of name of ACC to become name of ABIE - i.e.
"Person. Details" --> "US_Person. Details" 

My thoughts are:

- An ACC should remain as is, rather than being "transformed" into an
ABIE. This will allow the ACC to participate in other "scenarios" (i.e.
be joined to other ACCs through ASCCs) as well. In other words, we
should not take an ACC and classify it to create an ABIE.

- Rather: One should *copy an ACC* to produce an ABIE, and then classify
the new object (ABIE) according to one of the 8 Context Categories.

- Regarding (2) above - here's an open question whose answer I am not
certain of: Is the name "US_Person. Details" really the name "Person.
Details" with

(a) An Object Class Qualifier (US_) in front of it? 
(b) An entirely new Object Class (US_Person insteand of Person)? 

Another aspect is at the BCCs/ABIE level. On p.12, the "Person. Details"
ACC contains the following BCCs:

- Person. Name. Text
- Person. Birth. Date

For the p.16 example, these are represented as:

- US_Person. Name. Text
- US_Person. Birth Date

Should the BCC -> ABIE transition be handled the same way as I propose
the ACC -> ABIE transition be handled? That is, in going from an ACC to
an ABIE, should all BCCs that the ACC comprises be "copied, classified,
and name-modified" as well?
