I can take this one. It sounds like a job for the Adoption SC.

TC Members, Please see the communication below about
EDXL/DE and CAP wrt use in the FEA. A submission is required to FEA by
June 29. A link to the application is provided by Owen Ambur
below. Does someone out there have a little time you can take this
on? Julia did our original submission and I don't recall it being that
time consuming. Regards, Elysa

Subject: FEA Updates - CAP and EDXL-DE?
Susan, technically speaking, they havenâ€™t been promoted to Stage 2 of the ET.gov process yet: http://et.gov/stage2.htm#cops However, I hate to think that it might take another year for the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and Emergency Data Exchange Description Element (EDXL-DE) to be considered for inclusion in the FEA TRM.
DHS has a couple folks listed on OASISâ€™s Emergency Management TCâ€™s membership list: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/membership.php?wg_abbrev=emergency
James Bryce Clark mentioned CAP in his paper for the W3Câ€™s transparency in government forum: http://www.w3.org/2007/06/eGov-dc/papers/Clark-2007-W3-eGov-practicallurches.pdf Besides DHS, it appears that NOAA and USGS might be candidates to propose CAP for inclusion in the TRM.
Elysa, FYI -- submissions for the next round of updates to the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) models are due by June 29. The submission form is available at http://et.gov/stage4.htm
