Dear Paul, Dear All,
The current Z.106 does not support ServicePage or ChannelSubstructure

However, these should have been supported on the old version of Z.106 and
there should probably be at least a policy (if not a precise specification)

BlockPage was also in the old version and is not really needed now.
BlockPage was used in block and block type diagrams to distinguish between
pages containing blocks and pages containing processes. If BlockPage was

between pages containing flow graphs and pages containing services. If
ServicePage was given, the page contains services. If Page was given, the
page contains flow graphs. Note that all pages in a process diagram must be
of the same type.
The old version of Z.106 is available to Society members as file
