  • Description
    • Should source locators of B be copied into A? If they are, it is implied that A is the same topic map as B, which is not true. Also, topics reifying B will then also reify A, which means that any statements made about B will also apply to A.
  • Resolution
    • The source locators of subordinate topic maps merged into a master topic map should not be retained.
