Hi James,

I don't understand the point of links *from* the data model document to 
the formal model document,
since the link target is a copy of (an old version of) a constraint that 
appears in the data model document.
It would make more sense if links appeared in the formal model document.

In addition, all  constraints have been named, and can be linked using 
these names.

What do you think?
Cheers,
Luc
