4.7 Environments

Agents shall translate the client's environments for gvns and nrefs to the server's environments, defined in 4.1. The translation may be implicit – hidden from the client program with a translation table defined by the network manager – or explicit through extended references that include an environment specification in the client program.

In either case, the implementation shall not require the client program to contain any information about the server's name or environments. If necessary, the agent shall translate the client's environment specification to a server's name and to an environment as it is known on the server's node.

The server may treat a request whose environment equals an empty string as an error, or it may apply a default environment.
