HI all,

There are requirements in the Repository document pertaining to
interfaces, it makes sense to me to have these reference the API
document, i.e.

"It MUST be possible for an authorised consumer to query the DDR to
retrieve a device description, {*} as detailed in the
DeviceDescriptionRepositoryApi requirements ."

The following parts seem to belong in the API document as high-level
requirements, rather than in the Repository document:

- "It MUST be possible for the consumer to define the scope of this
description, namely the device property value or values which he wishes
to retrieve."

   The DDR MUST support a mechanism to allow an Actor to determine that
the existing, new or modified device description information has been
verified and validated."

....although for this last requirement there will be a Repository
requirement for the data model to include the source and any quality
assertions for a given property.
