I dont see that the OCC can really be any different from the VCC
since it is measured in value terms.

The TCC is ill defined, there is no procedure by which one can
measure it. If one views it as a scalar
how can one say when it has changed?
If it is a vector one can say when it has changed, but the
ordering relation on TCCs becomes partial.
