707   Empty names for SIUnitKind, MultiplierKind and CurveCharKind

This tissue has following status: green

Created: 11 Jan 2011


Page: 86, 87, 88

Clause: Annex D


Category: No impact on this part

Issue: SIUnitKind (ord=1) and MultiplierKind (ord=0) have empty name, while all the other similar enumerations have a non-empty name.

Proposal: To have uniform processing and validation of these string values, have the above two use the string 'none' (similar to CurveCharKind for odr=0).

The string value at SCL level will stay the empty string ("") 21 Mar 11 final proposal 2011-04-10
I support Christoph. At SCL level respective as text in a 'real' system it should remain the empty string. If this is a UML problem, name it emptyString, and replace at XML generation. 25 Feb 11 red
Assume you want to use these strings directly to display the unit. You would then e.g. suddendly read:
I am not sure if that is a good idea. In fact, they shouldbe empty strings like ""
