I, too, hate our use of the term "subunit" and support the change to
"components."

I also strongly agree with Pete that I don't want the proposed change.

Components are constituent elements.  Configuration is the relative
disposition or arrangement of elements.  Therefore, the Configuration is
made up of Components.

Capabilities depend on the available Components, or the Configuration.
Settings is a collection of Capabilities and their current state.  (We'll
ignore Heisenberg's uncertainty principle)

Hi Pete,

I see you what you mean, but...

Be aware that DMTF CIM Core WG hates our term "subunits" and has made
us completely replace it with their term "components".

"Configuration is" just too inherently ambiguous.  "Xxx" is just as
meaningful,
if the intent is to imply components.

Cheers,
- Ira
