RSA DAP: Unit Installation State update on Realization link resolution

1. A conceptual topology representing asset version x is represented in a physical topology as an imported topology
2. A physical topology represents all Units being in an Installed state
3. The designer imports an updated version of the conceptual topology
When the updated conceptual topology is imported to RAM, there will be attributes that have been updated, whereby the realized physical units will be out of sync with the conceptual units.

Upon resolving conflicts, the realized units do not change install state.

When designers resolve the physical unit conflicts against the conceptual, the install states do not change. For a small number of units, this is easily resolved since the designer can manually rectify the install states. However, when many units are at play, it will be difficult to tract all units that have changed.

The real impact to this is physical units can be updated, but will not be ?marked for workflow generation? based on install state.
