Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] Version


I think first of all, a version is not a specialized type of identity.

I would roll identity and identifier into one (identifier is the token of
the identity)

Version is an attribute of "resource" IMO.  It usually is denoted with a
major_version.minor_version.release in software but I think it is too
granular so I would just stop at version and not include version identifiers
or date-time string etc.
