Is the real view name in the mapping important at all since the view get
accessed by the implementation in the process() method?

I don't see the effect of the mapping to the default input view of an
sofa aware AE without input view capabilities at all. The mapping says
view1 is linked, but another one arrives.

So, the best practice is to introduce a parameter for specifying the
input view? In case that the AE implementation should be used several
times in an AAE for different views.
