Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] Status of Release

I think I see a consensus of thoughts here, but Lisa and I are trying to package the release and need a very specific recommendation of the LCSC.  We need two things ASAP.

1. Exact location withing the HTML document and

2. Exact text which points to the two "perspectives"


We can finalize the decision during the call, but anything is advance is appreciated.

The UML diagrams in Annex C are not limited to "technical solution" models.  In
fact, most people use these types of diagrams as a *logical* view of the
information model *as implemented* by the schemas.  Others (working on non-UBL
schemas) use these types of diagrams to QA the logical model contained in the
schemas to assure that the requirements are satisfied.

As Mike points out, both types of diagrams are equally useful, where one is a
diagram of requirements and the other a diagram of schema design, but they both
reflect a logical view of the data.
