Precisely!  The following is a diagram from our training material 
that we delivered in Australia in January, and is now available as 
part of the latest edition of our "Practical Universal Business 
Language Deployment" book (published today!):


I'm proposing to the UBL TC that these diagrams be included in the

But I think the approach is sound, which is why it is included in our 
book and training material.

Which was the reasoning behind creating aggregate and basic schema 
fragments analogous to those of UBL so that the business objects can 
migrate into the common library if the UBL technical committee 
chooses to effect.

I hope this helps.
