Subject: RE: Just what is a Core Component? Well, it depends on what "is" is.

I think Sally has provided a definition that is perfectly in-tune with the
published definition for a "core component" but.... It sure looks like the
definition for a "data structure", something that's been around since the
days of FORTRAN.

Nevertheless, I'm glad this is getting cleared up, but it would be nice if
terms were used that had a more modern -- context -- such as "resource-type"
does wrt Internet applications development. I suggest it's a good thing to
stay as high on the semantic stack as possible. To me, defining data
structures seems too low-level.
