The WebCGM WG has the following responses to your comment:

We agree that WebCGM 2.0 abstract should have a wording to introduce 
what webCGM is about. Therefore, we will add the following text in the 
WebCGM 2.0 abstract, as a first introduction sentence:

"Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) is an ISO standard, defined by ISO/IEC 
8632:1999, for the interchange of 2D vector and mixed vector/raster 
graphics. WebCGM is a profile of CGM, which adds Web linking and is 
optimized for Web applications in technical illustration, electronic 
documentation, geophysical data visualization, and similar fields. First 
published (1.0) in 1999 and followed by a second (errata) release in 
2001, WebCGM unifies potentially diverse approaches to CGM utilization 
in Web document applications. It therefore represents a significant 
interoperability agreement amongst major users and implementers of the 
ISO CGM standard."

Please acknowledge this WebCGM WG response by replying to this mail and

Best regards,

On behalf of the WebCGM Working Group,
Thierry Michel,  WebCGM WG Team Contact.
