Subject: Re: [regrep-cc-review] Bringing It Home: BIEs, ASCCs, and BusinessContext

The only way I see the second form to make sense is if there are 
differences in the attributes of a OfficialAddress and a 

Absolutely - and I would assert that the only time such derived classes
are created (in this case, ABIEs) are if there *are* differences in the
attributes. For example, an ABIE called "WorkAddress" may include a BCC
that represents a "MailStop", something that is not associated with
residence addresses.

I agree completely with Farrukh - if we allow registry users to simply
copy ACCs and add Object Class Qualifiers while retaining all of the
attributes of the "base" ACCs, a user could wind up with a maintenance
