I am on holiday this week with my family, and was unable to call in 
today, but find this completely unacceptable.  The UML should, at a 
minimum, be correct UML given that there are folks in this working group 
willing to assist to make it correct, including but not limited to me.  
Peter Haase (who created the metamodel in the first place) and I have 
discussed working together to revise that as well.

I am also willing to assist in educating folks in the working group 
about the purpose of a metamodel, and why it is ideally suited to the 
purposes specified in the FS&SS.  Leaving it as is will only create 
confusion among UML savvy folks who are looking to this working group 
for leadership.
