The Simple reference set type represents an extensional definition of a subset of components. The components can be concepts, descriptions, relationships and reference sets. Therefore, the reference set contains a list of references to one or more components.
The components can be specified for inclusion or exclusion for a specified purpose. For example, the
Simple reference sets contain only the basic information needed to define a subset. As presented in the section about the reference set design, each member in a reference set has a referencedComponentId attribute, which is used to refer to the component that is a member of the reference set. Within the instances of this attribute, the individual references to components are stored. The diagram below illustrates an example of a simple reference set, and illustrates how the subset members are referenced in the referencedComponentId attribute.
