2.2.37 ClassHeap

ClassHeap is structured like any other heap except that the items that are contained in it only apply to the CIM class definition.

 ClassHeap = Heap  

Because instances also contain class definitions as part of their encoding, it is important to ensure that the heap references are not intermixed between the class and instance parts.

All heap references that occur in the ClassPart (section 2.2.15) block MUST be limited to references in the ClassHeap.
