[fdo-dev] using dot '.' in schema element name

Hi Haris,
Dot and colon are reserved and cannot be used for scheme element names.
Colon is used as a delimeter between schema name and class name (e.g.
LandBase:Road) and dot is used for accessing object properties (e.g.
Address.StreetNumber) or for associations.

I am wondering is it possible to allow '.' dot character to be part of
FdoSchemaElement name ?
I realized that '.' is hard coded and used as scope delimiter for
fdoidentifer's but
I think it is important to be able to have class name  like:
Right now I am using ~ character but more intuitive would be to use '.'
