Subject: RE: [saf] Some cleaning up
Following Jeff’s addition to the spec of the ProtocolGroup as a first class entity (which I think I liked) I think we should become a bit more consistent with the way we handle groups of things in XML, e.g. in the case of potential syndromes we currently have a flat collection of syndrome uris as opposed to a more structured collection like we have for associated protocols. So I will make the following changes and please let me know if you have any objections.
Jeff – No need for grouping here as in AssociatedProtocols, but I like your proposed change. No point in allowing just anyURI when we are expecting Syndromes.
What about Symptom.RelatedSymptoms.RelatedSymptom? Instead of xsd:anyURI, maybe better to have <Symptom uri=”xsd:anyURI”/>
Also removed <IssuedPrescription>xsd:anyURI<\IssuedPrescription>* from the pseudoschema to reflect our decision to remove it from the spec.
Jeff – Oops. Thought I had removed that last go ‘round.
Finally, a question about incidents: did we decide that a symptom can indeed participate in more than one incidents??If so then maybe this should also be changed according to the “rules” above.
Jeff –Multiple Symptoms can be associated with a single Incident, but the inverse of one Symptom involved in multiple Incidents would be unusual.
Finally (again), currently content is specified as anyType[0..n] but as
in the pseudoschema. Shouldn’t that be
< Content >
</ Content >?
Jeff – I think xsd:any (without the brackets) is correct.
Any advice from someone more in touch with XML? (Vivian?)
