Subject: Re: [wsdm] F2F agenda item

+1 for the second choice.

As I recall, there were many use cases where a property or an
operation can belong to different management capabilities that one may
define.  Of course, you can go out of your way to define "capability"
categories that are mutually exclusive.  But I believe that is not how
most people would relate to manageability information.

A wsdm capability should be considered a meta data that can be
attached to various components of manageability information to form a
category that provides a meaningful manageability semantic.
