For review at the SM telecon this Thursday, the original charter
of the Semantic Model WG (September 2002) is at:
- MS Word source
- Adobe PDF version

The current plan is for the SM WG to define new Abstract Model
specs for non-Print services and Protocol Bindings which would
require a considerable broadening of the scope of the SM WG from
this original charter - which specifically prohibits defining new
models, objects, or semantics.

An alternative approach might be to proceed with the modelling 
and transport bindings as a project of the WIMS WG or a new MFP 
WG - extending the management-centric WIMS/1.0 Abstract Model and 
XML schema files to include job submission and job management and service-specific capabilities and defaults.

The PWG Steering Committee should probably consider this scope of 
SM WG versus WIMS WG versus hypothetical new MFP WG issue at their
PWG SC meeting this Thursday 19 April.
