Subject [GitHub] brooklyn-server issue #748: Catalog internal references

    @neykov I've never liked the split between catalog metadata and item definition.  Given
that we have it currently, it doesn't feel like a bad dev practise to disallow their separation
during dev.
    
    If we could remove the split we could make the BOM YAML simpler and remove the need for
the two paths.  That would mean putting catalog metadata into the definition, IE baking fields
such as `id`, `description`, and `icon_url` into the definitions -- and I guess being able
to ignore them if given to the type instantiation and that ignores them.  But that feels messier
than having the split?
