Yes, good names are a separate topic, and also it would be possible
to add as many specialized components (with specialized names) 
as required.  I'm only trying to:
a) simplify the hierarchy, so simple cases don't require unnecessary
    levels of objects; and
b) make features like Ordering Rules and Constraints freely
    composable wherever needed. (More on Ordering below...)

1. We agree on the goal "as-simple-as-possible".
2. You are probably correct about implied sequence in many cases.
3. Yes, Ordering Rules would only make sense for Composites.
    So my statement once upon a time about placing all feature
    associations on the top-level Component was over-simplified
    if not incorrect.

I'm responding to comments on my "Composite" proposal, 
but I do understand that you are also trying to merge tpaML
and the V2 metamodel.  It's a little confusing, I'm sure.
That's interesting that the TRP group has decided on tpaML -
one more area that will need alignment.  I'm glad you have
joined the BP discussion.

>I think you agree on the rest that was chopped.

I didn't chop it on purpose, and reposted the part that
I thought was interesting (more about overloaded names,
e.g. Transaction and Business Process.  It looks like
"Contract" is running into overloaded-name problems, 

Thanks again,
