[occi-wg] Infrastructure Templates (was: OS Templates)

Indeed, that is the way I had it until we changed it after a discussion on  
IRC if you remember :D

Now, read section "4.1.2 Categories" in Core. In order to allow the  
template Category to relate to a base type Category this section must be  
changed. Doing so however may (depending on how it is redefined) remove  
the distinction between a Category defining a sub-type of Kind and a  
Category used to assign tags to Kind _instances_.

regards, Ralf
