References are divided into two categories. Internal references refer to objects created within the domain, and Copy references refer to local copies of objects created in foreign domains. These differ from ForeignReference objects, as the latter refer to both the original object and the local copy.
Internal references are comprised of a database number which indexes The.Internet.LocalDomain.Databases, a class number which indexes The.Internet.LocalDomain.ObjectClasses and an object number, unique within each database-class combination.
Copy references are comprised of a domain number, which indexes The.Internet.Domains, a class number which indexes The.Internet.ForeignObjectClasses and an object number, unique within each class.
