3.4.1 Abstract Data Model
This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This specification does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this specification.
For some functionality on the AsyncEMSMDB interface, it is required that the client store an asynchronous context handle, as described in section 3.3.1, and use it on subsequent interface calls that require an asynchronous context handle.
