    Mandatory comment for StatisticalValue:

    In the data model in the TGs it looks like this:

    StatisticalValue in the PD model

    comment has multiplicity [0..1]. Does it mean it can be omitted or should we file a change proposal to make it voidable?

    By Mirosław MIGACZ

    OK, having a closer look at the IRs and the model it seems that IRs disregard multiplicity. But does that mean that ALL attributes that have not been marked "voidable" are mandatory according to the IRs, even if they have [0..1] multiplicity?

    StatisticalValue has a {valueOrSpecialValue} constrant which translates to IR as "Either the value or the specialValue attribute shall be provided". So one might think that one of these are the only mandatory attributes.

    StatisticalDistribution, however, has no constraints and attributes with multiplicity [0..1] are not voidable. So, reading only the IRs, one might think that ALL atributes are mandatory.

    INSPIRE datasets are validated with the xsd schema generated from the model described in the TGs, so in terms of validation we're OK, but it's the IRs that set the official requirements for Member States, so if they list [0..1] attributes as mandatory, we should point this out now.
