I am currently reading through the most recent AUI document. Some questions came to my mind. Please bare with me if these have been answered elsewhere already, but I am currently trying to catch up with the available material.


- dataType vs. dataFormat: "type" seems to be a data field type, whereas "format" sounds like a  document type description. Aren't these mutual exclusive?

- dataLength & isDynamic: I am wondering if these attributes belong to the abstract level at all. Assuming that any mapping between the domain model and data interaction units belongs into the CUI, then I expect these at the CUI level as well. 

- mapping domain objects: Is a simple domain object reference is sufficient? Does a more fine grained description of "what" should be mapped make sense here? I.e. domain attribute keys? 


Regarding the question wether or not this is an abstract concept. I can see Jean's point: It requires a reference on the AUI level to map concrete localisation concepts on higher levels. This question seems to be similar to the mapping of domain objects. 

Which relationships to the domain model are needed and how are they expressed? At what levels (AUI/CUI)?

Regards, Heiko
