mm1: Last year (yes 2004), ODETTE did an extensive project related to 
their next generation data model that used XMI. They had to provide 
significant constraint to the use of XMI because the interchange 
UML=>XMI and XMI=>XML rendered many differing results even when 
following the XMI specification. You might contact Patrick Chable re: 
their work and next steps, Duane. if we want experience, ODETTE could 
provide their input (patrick.chable@mpsa.com). Thanks.
