Subject: Re: [regrep] Issue with UUID's for Core Components and BIE's

There is more to this but he is right.  If there is any potential for 
the business designer to use the BIE or CC outside of a registry (likely 
a given), yet they may need to access the Registry RIM instance data to 
reconcile associations and/or classifications, the URI of the registry, 
perhaps in the form of a URL, should probably be a mandatory attribute 
of the serialization.

To retrieve a copy of anything from a registry, you need three things:

1. The UUID of the object
2. The location/address of the registry
3. Knowledge of the protocol used to bind to the registry to invoke the 
correct method to retrieve the object

Luckily for us, Farrukh and team have been able to build this into one 
simple URL encoded string:
