Yes. It's not explictly forbidden either, so I think we're OK. At the 
time that text was written cds didn't have the cdbase property so they 
were uniquely identified by their name. Probably when cdbase was added 
at OM2 we should have made that more explicit, but as you indicate 
that's a subject for OM lists rather than this one.

  But I will file a ticket for OpenMath (with you on Cc) to clarify this.

yep, got it, thanks.

David
