I just read the modifications to the document.

I'm a bit concerned that the definition of MediaUsed.MediaAccountingKey
("The locally unique accounting key for this specific media, for use
when MediaUsed.MediaSizeName is not unique.") might not be sufficient to
convey your requirement for this item.  What is meant by an "accounting
key"?  Is that a generally well-defined term?  I couldn't find the
definition anywhere in this document.

Based on the example provided for its use, there seems to be an implicit
intent to have the value provide *two* critical pieces of information --
presumably in some human readable form that convey an association of two
distinct things.  In my reading, "The locally unique accounting key for
this specific media, for use when MediaUsed.MediaSizeName is not
unique." doesn't suggest a need to identify two "things" -- or what
those things are.

But maybe everyone else understands the meaning of "accounting key" more
clearly than I do?

Subject: WIMS> Revision to Counter Spec


 
Jerry provided the MS Word version of the approved  counter spec, and I
made the changes that Ira and Pete had requested (taking a few liberties
with the wording). A marked up doc file is at
 
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimscount10-20070201.doc
(sorry, I am back in Boulder and do not have my PDF generator)
 
The changes are to document page 8 (Datastream change) and to document
pages 27 and 28 (MediaUsed.MediaAccountingKey addition)
 
This working draft is submitted for working group review, with the
objective of be able to submit it for a PWG review period including the
February face to face. Please review and submit objections before the
next WIMS/CIM meeting on 8 Feb.
 
Thank you.
 
Bill Wagner
