Firstly, you are correct to state that this is not a corporate issue.

Secondly I look forward to hearing your point of view - should be
interesting and useful as always. If its of any benefit, please feel free
to ring me to discuss.

Thanks, that's helpful ... at a personal level I would be uncomfortable
with the previously highlighted paragraph being forwarded as part of a
WG review; I'm trying to sound out some of my colleagues who are more
knowledgeable on UML than me, but it feels like I can leave it at the
level of Jeremy disagrees with Phil rather than escalate to HP disagrees
with IBM!

(I guess I should try and articulate why I disagree with you ..
hopefully before the telecon tomorrow)

I suspect some of my comments lean in the other direction, I'll try and
highlight those ones when I write them up tomorrow.
