Component documentation

Component: ComponentSchema Version:

The CMD schema currently only allows documentation of elements. It should also allow to document components. Semantics can be given via ConceptLinks? but documentation of components can be used to provide hints but also to express relationship between elements (and possibly also other components) which can't be expressed in the schema, e.g., if you choose the value 'other' please provide a description of your case. Both ConceptLinks? and documentation are currently optional, which could leave the metadata editor with only the component name to determine what to do ...

Once the CMDI schema accepts documentation for element the ComponentRegistry would need to be update to allow to fill it.

As documentation would be optional there is no breaking of backwards compatibility, so there is no need to wait for CMDI 1.2.
