— any item of discourse in the real world related to "competency" has a representation preserving its meaning in the proposed model;
— this representation allows comparison, hierarchical classification and aggregation of different items of discourse related to "competency".
The concrete content of items of discourse in the real world related to "competency" is not specified in this document, which only deals with the formal expression of the discourse.
