Subject Company model : concrete classes and use of "field-type"
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2007 11:25:23 GMT

I just looked through the company model and noted that the concrete classes 
now have some fields marked with "field-type" in the XML (e.g 
Company.address). Why? The field has its own type so there is no need to 
specify that. It is typically for use where a field is an interface and so to 
define the implementation(s) that the field will accept. Is there a reason 
for specifying it ?
