Note: There is a newer version of this specification see VEC 2.0.1

A CouplingPoint defines a single coupling. If a coupling takes place, all sub elements are connected. If the coupling is disconnected, all subelements are disconnected.

If a coupling occurs between two connectors, and not just between two terminals, the CouplingPoint references the respective ConnectorHousingRoles.
