Re: [dxwg] Profiles may provide rules on cardinality of terms (including “recommended”) [ID41] (5.41)

@rob-metalinkage While implementable profiles will undoubtedly use min and max, if you look at human-facing instructions you will find the use of "mandatory, repeatable, etc." along with "recommended" and at times "mandatory if applicable" "recommended if applicable". These latter cannot be expressed mathematically. That means that we have two kinds of cardinality - one that can be expressed with min/max, and one that comes in the form of input instructions. For human-facing documentation, the min/max rules can be expressed as "mandatory...etc.". It depends on who you are "talking" to at that moment. And I think we do need to make that equivalence in the document if we intend to cover the human-facing aspect of profiles.
