Done
Closing Date:

Background: 

This is a knowledge representation question.Where does temporal validity fit in with short cuts and indirection? Examples are the properties "current location", "former/current location" etc., where the temporal properties in the short cut entity are lost. Another question is, how a general indirection mechanism should be devised in order to add temporal validity to any property.

Current Proposal: 

In scope. Working Group 4. 

A guideline should be created describing a general extension mechanism compatible with the CRM, which provides temporal validity to any attribute. The attribute becomes short cut of the temporal entity describing the range of validity.

This should cover in general the issue 21.

Proposal accepted, issue open until guideline is available. (group 4).

Outcome: 

The model has been changed dealt with by Issue 127.

Issue closed.
