This is one of InLOC's direct properties.
|property of||LOCdefinition, LOCstructure|
- title should be a name, in a human language, for a LOCdefinition or LOCstructure;
- description should also be in a human language, and able to be displayed in any medium;
- furtherInformation can be any information in any form, including simply as a link.
There may be several versions of title in different languages, but at most one in each language and at most one with no language attribute.
However, given these general rules, many LOCdefinitions observed in existing skill or competence framework or other structure documentation, exist only in the form of short pieces of text, and do not have a name as such. For example, in UK NOS, the individual performance criterion lines and lines giving required knowledge and understanding are self-contained: they are self-describing pieces of text with no formal structure. They do not behave grammatically as titles, but are complete sentences, with performance criteria typically starting with an action verb.
In these cases, title may be omitted. But it would be strange and problematic to allow a concept definition not to have any text element associated with it. InLOC therefore suggests that any profile should require one or other of title and description as mandatory.
