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 

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.
