Hi Kingsley,    (01)

I don't know what you mean by "Distributed Data Dictionaries."    (02)

I know, for example, that there are many companies that centralize the
Data Dictionaries for most of their key systems.  For example, one of the
largest Pharmaceutical companies in the world requires that all its
Application Owners maintain the Data Dictionary for their applications in
a Centralized Data Dictionary that aligns each Dictionary by Application.    (03)

My Best,    (04)
