Goal

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA), why do the FSI_<simpledim>_CD tables of simple dimensions contain the following columns:

DEFINITION_LANGUAGE
LEAF_ONLY_FLAG

Language is usually specified in the MLS table and all Simple Dimension values are leaf level values because Simple Dimensions do not have Hierarchy definition tables.
