PrimitiveTypes are Primitive, which is fine until you have multiple
I take the view that PrimitiveTypes have a name but no namespace, so
A::Boolean is the same type as B::Boolean and just Boolean.
This potentially resolves the diversity of inputs.
When generating output you must select a PrimitiveType
that your downstream consumers will be happy with.
For an understanding serializer true.oclType() will give you OCL Boolean
which might get converted to the correct Boolean.
However QVTo is not helpful for UML, so you will indeed need to access
the correct model element, either by loading the model and querying it
using OCL or by providing a black box access with Java queries.
