WireElement

A WireElement specifies a WireElementSpecification in the context of a WireSpecification. This is necessary to define a unique identification of a WireElementSpecification in the context of a WireSpecification. Additionally, the WireElement serves as anchor for the instancing of a wire (WireElementReference) as the WireElementSpecifications are not uniquely related to a WireSpecification for reasons of reusability.
