  1. OMG Issue

PAGEOM_ — References to other specs, OMG and external, are very weak and poorly stated

  • Summary:

    References to other specs, OMG and external, are very weak and poorly stated. A table of referenced external documents would seem essential. There are (strong?) hints that some motel objects specialize objects from other specs but which ones and from where are thoroughly obscure. The spec seems to assume substantial knowledge of other LifeSciences TF specs; this is not necessarily bad, but it should say so explicity and identify the referenced specifications precisely.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Resolution explanation:

    The original PAGE-OM specification had a list of related existing OMG
    specifications. It disappeared during the editing process - and today,
    we are not able to trace where and when it happened. Therefore, we
    suggest to copy back what was previously in the specification,
    assuming that it was not an OMG intention to remove it.

    Add the following text at the end of the section Preface -> OMG Specification (or into any other place that would be suitable from the point of OMG formatting procedure):

    • Relationship to Existing Domain OMG Specifications
      • Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)
        The described specification extends the "Single Nucleotide
        Polymorphism" (formal/2005-11-01, formal/2005-12-01). Because
        it requires some changes in the SNP specification, the original
        SNP entities are also mentioned here, in this PAGE-OM
    • Bibliographic Query Service (BQS)
      This specification uses classes and attributes defined in the
      BQS (formal/02-05-03). It does not directly include the
      original BQS entities because its model is expressed as a CORBA
      model. However, it uses all bibliographic entities, except the
      query part (the query is not in the scope of this
      specification). The above is also true for the SNP
      specification. Therefore, this specification uses BQS only
      indirectly, via SNP.
    • Life Sciences Identifiers (LSID)
      It is used in the Identifiable class (again, as with BQS, only
      indirectly, via SNP specification).
