Subject: RE: [ubl-ndrsc] NDR Checklist Clarification

The rules you cite refer to Data Type dictionary entry names.  The qualifiers are for those - NOT the RTs.

I agree with Mark that primary and secondary Representation Terms are just 'Representation Terms' in our Library.  However, I can see where we got confused about Qualifiers for Representation Terms.  Throughout the first half of the CCTS it implies (but does not outrightly state) that Qualifers apply only to Object Class and Proprty Term.  But when we get to the naming rules, the CCTS states: Data Type Rules for Definitions

[D6] The definition of a Data Type shall use a structure that is based on the existence
of primary and secondary Representation Terms of the associated Core
Component Type, and is enhanced by Qualifier Terms. Rules for Data Type Dictionary Entry Names
[D14] The Dictionary Entry Name of a Data Type shall consist of a Representation
Term—preceded by Qualifier Term(s) as necessary —followed by a dot, a space
character, and the term Type. The space character shall separate words in multi-word
Qualifier Terms and Representation Terms. Each Qualifier Term shall be followed by an underscore.
To allow spell checking of the words in the Dictionary Entry Name, a space character shall follow
the underscores after Qualifier Terms.
Country_ Identifier. Type

This would explain why we have this column.  It has been in the models and schemas since at least 0p70 - so we have had it for 12 months and it passed reviews, presumably several times.  The good news is that we have never found anything worth putting in there, so it is currently always blank.

Sounds to me as if the CCTS has two conflicting views on derived Representation Terms - one calling them 'secondary' and the other calling them 'qualified'.

Chee-Kai's concern is that it may impact his schema generator.   My feeling is that what we are doing currently is correct.  Each Representation Term (in our models) has a complexType.  The use of Qualifier for Representation Term impacts the CCTS meta data and the naming only.

Mark, as Editor of CCTS , do you propose we should drop the Qualifier for Representation Term?

The CCTS specifies primary and secondary representation terms.  Both are lexically synonimous to "representation term".  There is no such thing as "qualifier representation term".  If LC has that in the spreadsheet, then they need to clarify and ensure conformance with CCTS.

	For every primary representation term used in the UBL model, a named 
	complex type MUST be defined. 
	For every secondary representation term used in the UBL model, a named 
	complex type MUST be defined. 

	How do "primary representation term" and "secondary representation 
	term" relate to each other, and to "representation term" and 
	"qualifier representation term"?  Are they 4 different concepts, 
	or some are synonyms or something else? 

	In the spreadsheet models, there are only "qualifier representation 
	term" and "representation term".  Please clarify. 

	A RootSchema in one UBL namespace that is dependant upon type definitions 
	or element declarations defined in another namespace MUST NOT import 
	schema modules from that namespace. 

	What is this talking about??
