Issue 479: policy for defining superproperties of family models' properties

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

In the 46th joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 39th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting and upon resolving the issue 474 new issue appeared concerning a general policy about declaring superproperties to CRM family models' properties. The question is: do we want the extensions to use high level properties from CRMbase or from another CRM extension? What happens if a property from another extension has no general CRM property?

The issue has been closed by decision of the CIDOC CRM Editors, on the grounds that it is no longer relevant: making sure that all classes/properties of family models stand in a subclass/subproperty relation (direct or through inheritance) to CRMbase classes/properties is no longer a concern. Furthermore, establishing dependencies btw family models that do not go through the CIDOC CRM are common practice.
