Yes, this certainly solves the problem, because we now have two places to "define" what class of thing the attribute belongs to: The column name, and the domain name. But I'm trying to reconcile all of this with 11179, the objective of which seems to be to capture the semantics of a data element in it's name without having to refer to a second source of information (in this case, name plus type).
