These are somehow magically merged by the CS (out of scope for CAP)
by some implementation specific 'parent-id'.
Yes, the implementation of properties/parameters is out of
scope for CAP, so how can we disallow something based on a
reason that we shouldn't know about because it's out of scope?
We eliminated what we call cross-table joins. So it keeps the
model simple. That is I can say component.property, but not
I've no idea what you mean by that. We decided upon
PARAM(component.property, parameter) instead of
component.property.parameter as a point of syntactical
clarity and consistency; it's got nothing to do with any
of the issues we're discussing.
