CMSish

where web content management and user experience collide

What’s the core entity in the WCM data model?

Is it Document or Page? Or should you go lower level: what about Component or even Attribute?

Actually, trick question. I’d say the core entity is more like Task or Process. Without these kinds of things, where’s the “management”? You’ve just got a content repository. WCM is about letting people do things with their content. If you’re doing goal oriented design (a good idea!) then this is the place to start.
