Hello, in the course of moving away from using OIDs to indicate the respecified parameter values in the Service Package, there are a couple different alternative terms that people suggested that would replace the "OIDParameter" in the service package class description and schema.

Initially, John suggested "RespecificationParameter".  This sounds good to me.  It's what I've currently used in the latest draft of the book and XML schema description.

However, I found some meeting notes I'd jotted down that indicate someone had also suggested "dynamically assigned" as the terminology we could use.  I didn't capture the rationale, but I believe it might have been because the terminology of respecifiable parameters is rooted in the legacy SN messaging, so we wanted to distinguish the new standard from that, while having equivalent functionality.

Are there other books (e.g. on the service profile or agreement) where we're already using one or the other of these terms, so that we can make sure this is consistent?

Should I change to:
