It is not clear in the current document where this domain-specific information goes.

The attribute names might be domain-specific, as I don't think "type", "location", "creator" or "content" are defined in the model, but that might be a mistake in the model. Can attribute types be domain-specific?

I'm not clear whether the list of examples, "coordinate, address..." are examples of attribute types or something else. It is said that "Location is an OPTIONAL characteristics of BOB". I'm not sure if "characteristic" is related to "attribute", and if this is implying a generic attribute type called "location".
