The gml:domainSet property element describes the spatio-temporal region of interest, within which the coverage is defined. Its content model is given by gml:DomainSetType.
The value of the domain is thus a choice between a gml:AbstractGeometry and a gml:AbstractTimeObject.  In the instance these abstract elements will normally be substituted by a geometry complex or temporal complex, to represent spatial coverages and time-series, respectively.  
The presence of the gml:AssociationAttributeGroup means that domainSet follows the usual GML property model and may use the xlink:href attribute to point to the domain, as an alternative to describing the domain inline. Ownership semantics may be provided using the gml:OwnershipAttributeGroup.
