Yes, I like that much better than Assignment. Still, I am not quite
satisfied with Association. It's such a general term. Can we come up with
a name that is more specific, e.g.,
<Lot-Picker-Association picker="John" lot="1"/>
Obviously, I really don't like that, but it is definitely more specific.

Good. Should I use the term association instead of dependency? Or, perhaps
there is a "physical dependency", and a "semantic association"? /Roger
