Re: Object Role Modelling (ORM) or UML or ?? for designing Schemas

Nevertheless, 'my' node might be designed to process marketing demographic
profiles. I got your pizza order forwarded to me because of an arrangement
(over which you have no control) with all of the fast-food delivery services.
I understand your pizza order in a perfectly reasonable way and I am capable
of useful (and profitable) processing of it. It is not my concern that the
processing I perform on your pizza order has nothing to do with your intent
in writing it in the first place. Within my own context, I am as much an
interested party to that order as is the pizza shop, or for that matter, you
yourself. And clearly it is not my responsibility to see that you get your
pizza, nor even to acknowledge that getting it was your original intent.
