Hi [~jacopoc],

So you're saying that before anything is added to the BI component, the field 
type definitions need to be corrected for it (in line with the pre-bigdata 
dogma, and before paradigm shifts involving Data Lakes and Data Vaults), plus 
the entity engine xml file needs to be corrected accordingly?

> Currently the record sequencer (delegator.getNextSeqId) is used to determine 
> the dimensionId for the CurrencyDimension. This is unnecessary as the uomId 
> from the UOM table can be used for currency.
> It also makes it easier to set the foreign-key in fact tables by generating 
> it based on the date provided, than by retrieving the dimensionId based on a 
> retrieval through the getDimensionIdFromNaturalKey service.
