-  A common useage of a Lookup operation is to map image pixel index to an enumeration, such as a Polarization state.  This can be handled by two means.  1) define a numeric equivalent for each enumeration literal, and use NumericEntry types.  Casting to the corresponding literal occurs outside of the operation.  2) your local model can define a LookupEntry extension which maps the native value directly the target EnumerationLiteral.  The details of either approach for particular enumerations is considered outside the scope of this document.

 Reorder Example:
-   We have a 3-dimensional coordinate (x,y,z) and wish to perform a 2-dimensional transform on the (x,z) plane.  Define a Permute operation with axismap list specifying sourceAxis [2,1,3].  The results feed into the next step ( 1D + 2D operations ).
+   We have a 3-dimensional coordinate (x,y,z) and wish to perform a 2-dimensional transform on the (x,z) plane.  Define a Permute operation with axismap list specifying the new axis order, [2,1,3].  The results feed into the next step ( 1D + 2D operations ).
 Duplicate Example:
    We have 2-dimensional coordinate (x,y) feeding two Polynomial2D operations to form (x',y').  Define a Permute operation with axismap list specifying sourceAxis set [1,2,1,2].  The result feeds into the next step ( Polynomial2D + Polynomial2D  operations).
