Did your discussion touch on what the advantages of special casing the 
global attribute class might be? or don't you see that there are any?

I note that we also have a so-called model.global which isn't actually 
global, precisely because it's not special-cased of course.

We concluded that the advantages of a special global attribute class are outweighed by the considerable decrease in special-casing in ODD-processing, and ambiguity about when att.global applies. Increased transparency will pay off in the long term, though we think we need to investigate the effect on some existing ODDs. We recommend that the Council endorse the proposal.
