Definition: 

A Correspondence Table expresses relationships between the members within or between StatisticalClassifications.

Explanatory Notes: 

CorrespondenceTables are used with Statistical Classifications. For instance, it can relate two versions from the same Classification Series; Statistical Classifications from different Classification Series; a variant and the version on which it is based; or, different versions of a variant. In the first and last examples, the Correspondence Table facilitates comparability over time.

Example: 
Correspondence between the U.S. Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) and North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS)

Please see comparison package - there is a proposal to replace this object in there

This was created for annotation so that there was an option for entering the name, a two level role association and an optional link to an Agent. In the context of a Correspondence table shouldn't these be relations to Agents (or Organization?). Changed cardinality to match descriptions. NOTE: Verified with Flavio and implemented change
