Category: relations

A units may define relations to other Units: it b:has additional references. These relations are references (b:UnitRef).

When many Units in a Collection have a structurally consistent relation to a different Collection, than that other Collection is a "shadow" of the first. When needed, the Rules of the first Collection can include a generic reference with optionally a rewrite rule (b:shadow element in the b:has).
