Is it a good idea to flat the complexity of different sources (device aliasese and device alias ports) generated info units, to the common paradigm of a single representation model ? Some info unit could hide incapsulated complexity:
a camera sensor could produce numbers, as pixels, or the whole image could be an info unit. In this case the info unit could be for example the context, the meaning of the whole image, and pixels as info units (1 pxel as 1 inof unit) could be useless. This is what I mean when I use the term of "incapsulated complexity".
