    Issue summary: Which is it, (OR-Join) or (XOR) Gateway?

    Note: This issue is closely related to 9327

    See page 24, adopted spec 06-01-01
    Table 8.3, BPD Complete Element Set
    row for "Merging (OR-Join)"
    Text tells how to use "A Merging (XOR) Gateway", but the name of the model element is given as "Merging (OR-Join)".
    Then in row "Gateway control types" on page 20 it bives the names as 'XOR' and 'OR' as names of distinct types of control
    It seems to me that the author of the text in the row for "Merging (OR-Join)" was thinking of xor as being a sort of specialization of inclusive or, and so mixed a discussion of the OR and XOR together, but this is inconsistent with defining OR as meaning inclusive or. This needs to be rewritten to be consistent.
