  May i ask a question?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- test case id: wfs-1.1.0-Basic-GetFeature-tc200.2 -->
<wfs:GetFeature xmlns:wfs="http://www.opengis.net/wfs" version="1.1.0" service="WFS">
<wfs:Query xmlns:sf="http://cite.opengeospatial.org/gmlsf"
<ogc:Filter xmlns:ogc="http://www.opengis.net/ogc" xmlns:gml="http://www.opengis.net/gml">
<gml:Envelope srsName="urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG::4326">
<gml:lowerCorner>34 14</gml:lowerCorner>
<gml:upperCorner>41 23</gml:upperCorner>

For this request, there is one spatial column for the EntitéGénérique table.
This request is missing <ogc:PropertyName> element which is normally
set before the geometry element (ie, would have been before gml:Envelope element in this request).
Therefore, it is obvious that the BBOX will be run against the single spatial column in EntitéGénérique table.

What spatial column should be chosen for the other featureTypes whose tables have more than 1 spatial column?
For instance PrimitiveGeoFeature has more than 1 spatial column.
Should an exception be raised in that case because it is not apparent against which spatial column the
BBOX is gonna run?

The assertion for this test is not clear and needs to be revised.
