This draft is for communication purposes, to clarify ORM semantics, and covers only a basic core of the metamodel
(ignores units, structured data types, structured derivation rules etc.).
A more complete metamodel designed to optimize model exchange is to be completed later.
This metamodel assumes syntactical completeness (e.g. some mandatory constraints may be violated when in the process of building a model)
Although UUIDs are used for key elements to facilitate model merging, versioning, and reuse, the metamodel assumes each model instance
owns all its elements. The metamodel can easily be extended to cater for reuse of components from external models.
The delegates at the workshop agreed to set up a group of experts to produce such an exchange schema.
