This entry is being considered for deprecation. It was originally used for organizing the Development View (CWE-699), but it introduced unnecessary complexity and depth to the resulting tree. It cannot be deprecated until after the CWE team has reviewed whether other CWE elements are appropriately capturing the "location" in which the weaknesses are introduced.
