Dear Michel, Jan, Dagbjorn and the other HMSC fans
This discussion is becoming ever more interesting. Michel found the
sentence I looked for, but did not find. But - it is not in the static
semantics of the graphical grammar, but it follows the textual grammar.
This may seem like a detail, but there _is_ a static semantic section
also following the graphical grammar.
In Dagbjorns original example, the textual representation of the graph
_will_ be connected. The "free" fragments have start conditions which
are found in the part of the graph which is connected to the start
(transitively). The way I (choose to) interpret the quoted (by Michel)
sentence is that the graph shall not have conditions which cannot be
reached through an execution from the start. But this is not what
Dagbjorn is asking for. His question is about the graphical
representation as far as I can see it.
I am still of the opinion that it is allowed to have "free fragments" as
long as the conditions in the fragments can be reached from the start.
