Yes. Or FPI, or the things at the ends of the
arrows that enter the top of IDEF definitions: aka, controls.
In each case, a record of authority governs some
process or declaration. It doesn't matter if it is
the same document or a copy as long as it can be
proven to be an exact copy. That means another process,
and another control, and so on to exhaustion. The
trick is to bound that so one doesn't burn down the
network chasing definitions. The next trick is to
enable a variant where local conditions need local
controls but function in situ as if they were the
original authority so are delegates. Usually, a
certificate of delegation is the proof (sometimes known
as a waiver). Poof! RDDL gets another resource
and role to play.

Neither of which are specific to RDDL. I assume everyone
agrees with this. In the general case, these are just
consequences of dealing with URIs, n'est-ce pas? -T
