In modelling parlance they can use parameters, partitions or delegation, but, contrary to representation patterns, abstraction is to be understood in terms of subsets if the consistency and continuity of identities is to be maintained.

According to architecture driven modelling objectives, such a core should be limited to persistency and execution units and the associated dependencies.
