So, in general, given an entity that may be described using any number of description frameworks, where
- these frameworks may range from free text descriptions to formal ontologies, and
- any framework may be used without prejudice and as seen by someone to be applicable, 
UDEF is one such framework.

To the extent that it can be cited and used in a limited framework, 
i.e. it is not necessary to accept it as the be-all definition of

as one of many possible data element specifications. Where it fits 
well, I suspect it will be used, where it doesn't, it won't.
