CIM Issues #6632
update definition of deprecated
IEC 61970-301 defines <<deprecated>> as:
The CIM model may at times contain packages, classes, attributes, or associations that have been identified as deprecated. These items will be noted in the documentation or with a UML stereotype of “deprecated”. A deprecated item is retained in the present version of the model, but is expected to be removed from future versions. An item that has not been deprecated is not guaranteed to be retained in future versions, but using an item marked as deprecated should be avoided if possible."
Propose to add the following to the definition of deprecated:
"One reason for deprecating a class, attribute or association rather than removing it, could be to allow for the use of the item in an updated profile that is updated with non-breaking changes. New profile should not use any deprecated items."
