RE: BIG ISSUE -- re Delivery Units - Better term?

Hi Johannes,

Yes - A delivery unit is a resource.
And a primary resource is a delivery unit. 

But non-primary resources are also delivery units.  So we can't use delivery
unit in our provisions.    (or they become impossible to conform to.  Unless
we want to redefine the term - which we can't do). 

Hence the problem.

A Delivery Unit _is_ "a primary resource and zero or more resources".

This is a _Resource_.

That is a Delivery Unit.
