Ordinate dimensioning:  does each view get its own origin?

My boss told me that each view is entitled to its own origin when ordinate dimensioning.  This seems totally wrong as doing so would not fully constrain the part definition.


If each view gets it's own zero point, not necessarily related to any other zero point, dimensions / features could be all over.  Y14.5 does not seem to mention if the origin must be static for the part (or I could not find it using Reader).


Does each view using ordinate dims really get its own origin?
