[sc34wg3] Questions on N0396: (15) [value] vs [resource] property on occurrence
Tue, 22 Apr 2003 20:50:01 +0200
Section 3.7 defines the [value] property on occurrence items to
"A string, or null. The string, if present, is the information
resource the occurrence connects with the subject."
and the [resource] property to be
"A locator item, or null. The locator, if set, is a reference to
the information resource the occurrence connects with the subject."
The value/resource exclusion constraint says that exactly one of the
properties must contain null.
At least in XTM, the information resource that is the content of
a <resourceData> element is addressable and so it would make
sense to me, if N0396 would allow me to have a value on the [value]
property and the [resource] property at the same time. This would
enable me to record the address that addresses the value if I need to
do so (I propably address the <resourceData> in some other context
such a from within <subjectIdentity> and would like to keep track of
the fact that the value of the occurrence is the same information
Why should an application/user be prohibited from doing so?
