Benedikt,

If, for instance, data representing some of the values in a dimension are too small in some sense (say counts of people having some characteristic), a designer will aggregate those small values into one in the level above.  The idea is to raise the counts to avoid possible problems with disclosing proprietary information.  Therefore, one cannot know for certain if the values in some dimension all come from the same level.

Yours,
Dan

Hello,

Is there a concrete use case of this issue? 

XKOS defines levels as subClassOf skos:Collection [1]. On first sight it would make sense to restrict the values of a dimension to all members of a certain level.

I have added a requirement at [2].

Best,

Benedikt

Some complex industrial classifications use skos:Collection for additional structure; for example, in a multi-level classification, all concepts at a certain level could be grouped into a skos:Collection. Wanting to specify that the values of a QB dimension are all from such a collections seems reasonable and should be supported.
