Subject: Re: [emergency-msg] Hybrid Model?
Hi Renato, Sorry, but we didn't come to a clear, yes-no conclusion on the Hybrid. We still have to check to be sure that the inclusion of a DOM per se, is not an OASIS requirement. I am sure it isn't, but I am copying Mary McRae, our OASIS Administrative contact, to confirm that. Once we have that confirmation, the only other item we have to cover is to make very clear is that the Hybrid Model is specifically not a DOM and is not intended for producing program code such as a class library from an Class Diagram. I am not sure if that means we must say that it is non-normative or only non-normative for any purpose other than as an informational resource. The problem is that there is a possibility of confusion because it could very easily be mistaken for a DOM and because it could be used as a standard UML 2.0 model, it could be used that way for application development. I would like to use it that way myself, but I don't have the time to test it to see what would actually happen if it were to be used that way. However, as long as we make it clear that is not a DOM, we take ourselves off the hook, except, of course, for the inevitable questions that will arise during public comment concerning why we did not produce a working DOM for the web application programmers out there to use correctly. If we did not have such a large community of developers using DOM-based dynamic web scripts (or, to be correct, if we didn't have so many non-programmers out there using wysiwyg tools that build there own little DOMs as needed, it wouldn't be a problem, but because we do, and AJAX is taking off, too, I suspect we may well need to answer those kinds of questions. But we can burn those bridges when we get to them ;-). As long as we are decisive, and I think we are, we should be fine. The next telecon hasn't been settled. We need to hear from enough others that scheduling a Thursday evening meeting is worth doing. We may be seeing some folks getting a bit of fatigue, and that is difficult to overcome.
