5 Choreography

The message defined in this standard, the LinkResourceAndWorkMessage, can be sent by any party that wishes to communicate a Resource-Work Link. The recipient of this message shall reply, in a timely manner with a LinkAcknowledgementMessage to inform the sender of the LinkResourceAndWorkMessage of the receipt of the message. Such LinkResourceAndWorkMessagess can be sent in reply to a LinkRequestMessage or based on any other trigger.

The acknowledgement message can also be used to signal, for instance, conflicts between different link claims. For the avoidance of doubt, the resolution of any conflicts is outside the scope of this standard.
