> All,
> Attached is the latest version of the Categorization chapter out of  
> the
> SoaML specification. This is really a generic concept that should get
> wider
> review before being included in the submission. Categorization is a
> simple
> idea based on capabilities defined in RAS to provide many, orthogonal
> ways
> of organizing model elements. Catalogs are defined by the Categories
> and
> sub-Catalogs they contain. Categories may have attributes that can be
> used
> to provide additional information or characteristics of the Category.
> Any
> model element can be categorized by a Catalog, Category, or instance  
> of

> Category (which can contain values for the attributes). Categorizing a
> model
> element places it in the Catalog that contains that Category (or
> sub-Catalog). A model element can be categorized many ways and
> therefore
> appear in many catalogs. The document contains a few simple examples.
