On the other hand, I have no objection to the idea of making the scope facility a separately-borrowable module of the SAM. (In fact, from a design perspective, that's a good idea, but really it all depends on what we want to do. To modularize the SAM may or may not be better for the development of the topic maps market, and we're still in its early days, here. This is a BIG ISSUE that deserves careful thought on everyone's part, with special consideration given to those who have invested in business plans that might be affected one way or the other.)

The names of borrowed properties, assertion types and role types are not affected by being borrowed; each remains as defined in the definition of its TM Application of origin.
Seems to imply that the definitions are *not* included as their entirely (semantics and all). Also, is there a rule for resolving name clashes? Does there need to be?
