I don't entirely understand your comment. Where do you fit a message component which describes (i.e. further refines) a process)?
example: suppose you have a message called "order to buy or sell'. Within that message, you specify (ie. refine) by saying it is for
instance a 'buy'.
In other words, sometimes messages (and as such one or more of their components) describe part of a process. This relates to
defining how 'generic' a message will be.
Or did I completely misunderstood your comment?

Can you tell me where I could find this documentation you refer to (URL?)?
