 +====== The MVF Entry -- what a model element links to ======
 +
 +What does a model element link to? Some "​concept"​ object? Multiple terms/​entries in different vocabularies? ​
 +We agreed that a model element links to an undefined object called an "MVF Entry"​. ​ The purpose of this page is to tease out the characteristics of an MVF Entry and then retitle it if it matches some vocabulary concept.
 +
 +The MVF Entry lives somewhere. Model elements link to it. It is linked to entries in multiple vocabularies.
 + 
 +The link from the model element is surely an IRI, but it must be one that can be decoded to a locatable object/​resource that is the MVF Entry. ​
 +
 +===== Nature of the MVF Entry =====
 +
 +Some proposals have been discussed. ​
 +
 +  * Proposal: The MVF Entry is just an IRI that all the related language vocabularies agree to use for the "​concept"​. ​ Some additional property of the Model must point to "​Vocabulary resources"​ in which the IRIs are tied to embedded vocabulary entries.
 +
 +  * Proposal: The MVF Entry is a container that contains the links to all of the corresponding vocabulary entries. The idea that they represent the same concept is implied. ​ Effectively,​ the MVF Entry is the reference form of the "​concept",​ at least for the ModelElements that link to it.
 +
 +  * Proposal: The MVF Entry is a vocabulary entry. ​ These entries can be linked to each other across vocabularies,​ or in a separate resource. ​ The model element can point to any of those resources as a starting point. ​ The effect is that the model element points to one element of some kind of circular linked list.
