A dimension is a collection of related dimension values (DimVal objects), organized into a tree. The top-most dimension value in a dimension tree is known as the dimension root. A dimension root always has the same name as its dimension.

Each dimension can belong to only a single dimension group (DimGroup object). If a dimension is not assigned to an explicit dimension group, it is placed in an implicit dimension group of its own. These implicit groups have no name and an ID of zero.
