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.

[DDR-USE-QUERY]
"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."

- "[DDR-USE-QUALITY-VERIFICATION]
   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.

Cheers
Kevin
