I guess everyone is busy to leave for the meetings.

I will need to report on the Reference Model and SAM at the next Japan sc34 
meeting and we were discussing how to translate "assertion" properly in the 
context of the Reference Model. The closest translation I can come up with 
is, shu-chou  with the 2 Kanjis  meaning "main" and "stretch."

The translation in one dictionary for "assertion" has this kanji to 
represent it.
It is also defined as, "to claim one's point; insistence." Does this 
capture the meaning of "assertion" in the Reference model? Thanks.

Best regards,
