Re: [ #440667 ] Affiliation lacks CorpName

| Your second sentence doesn't pass my English Language parser here, so I
| went and read the RFE.  A few questions:

Uh, yeah, I mean to say something like "He goes on to point out that
orgname is likely intended to be used for the corpname here."

| What was the rationale for adding corpname?

I know longer recall the origin of corpname and the affiliation

| Why wasn't corpdiv added at the same time, so that corp* is analgous to
| org*?

I don't recall. I think we probably ought to deprecate corpname and
promote orgname as a replacement for it.

| I did look at the archived RFE's, but couldn't find answers to these.  I
| think that will help clarify what the intent is here, and how things
| ought to work out.

A lot of the metadata stuff was borrowed from Majour and the whole
metadata framework is currently being examined by the TC.

                                        Be seeing you,
