Ballot question: "Is this charter ready for external review?"
** What is "Thing Interaction and Data Modelling"? ** What is currently outstanding to make SDF “IEFT quality”? I worry that the text currently reads as “start with SDF and make it better”. ** What does "working with experts from OneDM and its contributing organizations" practically mean? Is this something other than the participants who previously worked on SDF will now continue working on it in the IETF? Is there some formal liaison activity? ** Per "model harmonization,” is that trying to streamline the “200 models in the SDF format”? How wide of scope will this be? How does one know if one is done “harmonizing”? ** What does the collaboration with the IRTF FDT group entail?
Roman's point about the lack of a gap analysis between "what SDF is now" and "what the final product should be" is spot-on. It also seems pretty important to have a clear picture about what the expected relationship between OneDM and the IETF/this WG is to be. In a related vein, do we have a sense of who will participate that is not already participating in OneDM? I suspect that some of the terminology used here will not be familiar to all IETF participants; is the expectation to just roll the terminology/definitions into the main spec? It's a bit unclear to me how SDFs relate to TDTs (though I don't expect the answer to need to be in the charter).
I suggest to clarify why an "Implementation Draft" is different than a revised I-D based on experience gained by implementation. It is probably the same concept but it should be clarified. -éric
Thanks for the updates.
