Semantic standards and technologies can facilitate the management
of the dependency relationships between related components.
Applications at different layers must map shared information both structurally
(e.g., identifying which fields map to each other in different data
schemas) as well as semantically (e.g., specifying the derivation relationship
between a field in one schema and one or more fields from a
potentially different schema). Believing that the efficient maintenance
and evolution of such mappings is as important as creating the initial
