Property flavorId : WideString; (Read/Write)

Class Iv3ED

Signals the imposition of one or more sets of constraints on the datatype. The sole purpose of specifying that a constraint that has been used to further constrain the datatype is to support validation of the instance: a validation engine can look up the rules expressed for the specified flavors and confirm that the instance conforms to the rules for the flavor. No other processing should depend on the content of the flavor attribute.

No other semantic or computational use SHALL depend on the value of this property. If this value is populated, the datatype flavor(s) SHALL be a valid constraint on the type of the value.

There is further discussion about the use of Data Type flavors and flavorId in section A.3
