-//Depending on the design ​of the MVF metamodel, ​Model Vocabulary may be a separate ​information artifact ​or just a view of various other vocabularies ​referenced by the MVF Dictionary.//+===== Narrative ===== 
 +  * The group developing ​the model is expanding the scope of their standard. ​ Thus new concepts will be added to the model that will need appropriate terms and definitions. 
 +  * A standard developer (MVF user) researches the new area and finds that concepts in the extension to the standard are defined in mix of machine readable reference vocabularies and more traditional text references (papers or web links). 
 +  * The user imports the machine readable vocabulary file containing the terms and definitions that he wants into his MVF facility. ​ This creates a new MVFDictionary for all the concepts in the reference vocabulary and one or more Vocabularies in the Workspace. ​ [there should probably ​be a parameters to the import operation that allow the user to specify which languages will be supported by the import and thus what vocabularies will be created.][There is a question as to whether or not to create ​a separate ​MVFDictionary for the reference vocabularies imported ​or just use the model MVFDictionary.] 
 +  * For each concept, the user will indicate the VocabularyEntry to add to the model Dictionary and have the tool add corresponding MVFEntry to the reference MVFDictionary and to the model vocabularies.  The MVFEntry would have the same externalReference as the entry in the reference dictionary.
