Re: why deletion of the outside attribute of compartment in SBML L3

Unfortunately for the time being you will have to encode this sort of information in a custom annotation, as the editors removed the attribute. Here the reasoning behind the decision:
Since the information is quite useful it would make sense for different tools to agree on the same annotation to be used, so this information can be exchanged between tools. (Especially since no alternative package exists yet, or is in planning). An annotation like:
<outside xmlns="http://sbml.org/outsideinformation" compartment="compartmentSId" />
would suffice. it would be easy enough to translate this information when changing levels.
