Subject: RE: Tags and semantics ( was Dotted Names)
David, I am not sure what the bits that are exposed are. The core components will be fairly useful yet lightweight, but the context rules will also be rather opaque as they have not had the emphasis in the CC work so far. So what about the semantics that is being 'left' to the context? I also have some severe doubts about the context rules validity without seeing concrete examples of how the CC will be represented in the Repository. Martin M.E.

In fact this is probably the single most important part - and developing ad hoc systems to reliable capture and expose pure business information detail is the next challenge. What the current CoreCmp does is bikini information, "what it exposes is interesting, but what it conceals is vital". But let's get V1.0 - the bikini part - working first - then we can tackle the next level! Thanks, DW.
