The DDI mapping group have queried the usefulness of the Data Channel object.
What is a data channel really? It is the combination of instrument, mode and data resource
Is this a candidate for removal from the model?
It should not be removed without thought.
Flag for review at a latter meeting.
2/7/13 meeting: Adam Brown to talk to Arofan Gregory about the issue.
Arofan: we have agreed that it should be closed (unless Adam thinks otherwise) – both Chris and I agree that there is a distinction between the existence of a data resource and the *use* of a data resource for a particular statistical activity, which is what a data channel represents.
We may want to review the definition of data channel, but I think it will hold up.
