Alan Conway created DISPATCH-80:

             Summary: Management schema: implement annotations and entity inheritance as per
AMQP management WD 09
                 Key: DISPATCH-80
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DISPATCH-80
             Project: Qpid Dispatch
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Management Agent
    Affects Versions: 0.2
            Reporter: Alan Conway
            Assignee: Alan Conway
             Fix For: 0.3

The AMQP management draft 9 defines annotations, collections of attributes that can be applied
to entity type definitions. This is very much like the "include" entries in our existing spec.

To do:
- Convert the existing "include" entries to conform to standard annotations.
- Add inheritance between entity types
- Introduce this simple hierarchy: 
configurationEntity: base for all entities derived from the config file.
operationalEntity: base for all entities queried by qdstat.

"Configuration" information is supplied in advance and expresse intent. For
example "I want the router to listen on port N", or, "I want the router to
connect to this address" All the entities that can be used in the configuration
file are "configurationEntity".

"Operational" information reflects the actual state of the router at a given
moment in time.  For example, "how many addresses are presently active on the
router?" All the entities queried by qdstat are "operationalEntity".

The two types are often related, for example "I want an on-demand connection to
this address" and "is there presently a live outgoing connection to this
address?"  As a matter of good practice we separate the two kinds of
entities. For example "listener" and "connector" are configuration entities
expressing the intent to make or receive connectoins. The "connection" entity
holds live operational information about an actual connection.
