Subject: Reminder: Meeting Today

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to remind you all that we have a meeting scheduled today. 
Although I have not posted an Agenda, I do want to suggest that we 
discuss starting work on the intermediate technical level draft of 
the principles of EDXL-DE reflected in the requirements that can be 
derived from EDXL-DE 1.0. I think we should also include a discussion 
of how we will be approaching the upcoming decision about versioning 
DE, which is now due for either a 1.1 or 2.0 version.

What I think we need to do is to establish the relationship between 
requirements for a given specification, EDXL-DE, in this case, and 
the principles we can derive from the mechanisms adopted in the 
specification to meet the requirements. For some added background on 
the history of the DE, please see the White Paper from David Aylward, 
Gary Ham and Tim Grapes which I uploaded to the EM Adoption 
Collateral and Documents SC this morning.


While I don't think we need to develop a historical account of the 
EDXL family in depth for the RIM, I do think we need to address the 
fact that there is a significant history behind the conceptual 
structure of some of our mechanisms such as the 
ValueListURN-Value/Keyword combination.

I also think that , in addition to the technical illustrations and 
diagrams we will use, we should also use some less IT-technical 
analogical illustrations to make clear the relationships amongs 
ReferenceModels, Reference Architectures, Solution Architectures and 
platform/OS-specific choices.
