you can reuse part of a model (or a schema) without being affected by every change in any related part (encapsulation). Hopefuly we can get to the point where the core model is stable and we are adding new modules or improving specific aspects. This means namespaces - since we have one per application schema.

We will just need tools to help us building configurations - humans dont buold instances - so more namespaces isnt such a problem in reality is it?

what's the benefit of having many namespaces again ?

Hi all,

The v3 RC2 model is on the verge of schema generation.

Simon mentioned in passing to me that we might consider extracting the EarthMaterial leaf package out of the quite large GeoSciML-Core package and into its own Application Schema.

As far as I can see, this would not introduce any dependency problems (GeoSciML-Core schema would just import the EarthMaterial schema), and it would be a fairly simple thing to implement even at this late stage in v3 RC2.

Could I get feedback from everyone about whether they think this is a good idea.
