in railML3 we use a lot of referencing to other elements in order to enhance the
information. In <assetsForInterlocking> we have at the moment only references
into <functionalInfrastructure> of IS when there is a physical representation of
the element at trackside. All other references are strictly inside IL part.
However, there are some physical items which are not in IL but would needed
there without adding additional information, e.g. <bufferStop> would be used as

Subsequently it is not always that way the references from functional
interlocking items like <route> are limited to IL elements. Thus it was
suggested to have for each element in <functionalInfrastructure> of IS a
counterpart in IL. This would limit the area of possible reference targets.

bufferStop <-- bufferStopIL
signalIS <-- signalIL
routeStart --> signalIL
routeExit --> bufferStopIL

Would you appreciate this change or would you strictly avoid such "auxiliary"
elements without any additional information?

Best regards,
