Subject: RE: [sca-assembly] Issue 37 proposal

I had an action to propose an alternative resolution. Apologies I could
not act upon it earlier. However, I would like to response to this
thread and at least get the ideas in front of everybody ...

I do not understand why promotion in a deployable composite should be
treated differently. If promotion is used to reconfigure certain
services/references, I think this requirement is equally valid for a
deployable composite.

I think one of the tenets of the proposal in the email below is that -
all services/references of components in a deployable composite becomes
visible at the Domain level and no special declarations are necessary
for selecting  the particular component services/reference that need to
be made visible at the Domain level. I see a fundamental issue with this
approach. I think there should be a specific syntax/mechanism for
identifying which services/references become visible at the Domain
level, since not every component service/reference may have been
designed and deployed for Domain wide consumption. 

I think it is simpler to solve this problem by requiring that - only the
promoted services/references of the deployed composite are made visible
at the Domain level.  This semantics will also take care of Mike
Edward's use case, AFAICT. 

In essence, the proposal is to use the promotion mechanism for
reconfiguration as well as for controlling the Domain level exposure of
