Subject: Re: [regrep] [Fwd: [CEFACT-ATG:672] [atg2] modularity discussion]

Thanks Monica. I completely concur with Paula's observation regarding
this issue in CCTS.

For all: The approach that we are planning to take for Core Components
in our Registry architecture is to allow not only for the registration
of Basic Core Components (BCCs) separate from Aggregate Core Components
(ACCs), but also the the registration of Basic Business Information
Entities (BBIEs) separate from Aggregate Business Information Entities
(ABIEs). This approach allows users to (for example) register a BCC with
a Dictionary Entry Name of "Country. Identifier" (without an Object
Class Qualifier, since it is not yet associated with an ACC) that can be
used in multiple ACCs (Address. Details, PersonOrigin. Details, etc.).
Once associated with each of these ACCs, the BCC's Dictionary Entry Name
would include the Object Class, to become (respectively) "Address.
Country. Identifier" and "PersonOrigin. Country. Identifier".

Otherwise, a user would need to re-register over and over a BCC (or
BBIE) for every ACC in which it may appear.
