The Find Orphans search is very helpful for cleaning up the content of a model. I follow the rule: "A model element must be mentioned at least in one diagram".

However, when I use a Data Type as an Item Conveyed for an Information Flow connection between two components and that Data Type is not placed in any other diagram, it is listed in orphans as well.

I would justify this as a bug in the search command, because the name of that element is mentioned on a diagram and therefore should not be listed as an orphan.
