Hi Michael,
OMG describes MDA on this page http://www.omg.org/mda/.  I'm looking forward
to hearing Elisa's update on this topic and how semantic web is related to
it on our 7/30 event. I'll ask her the questions you raised (good ones). If
Elisa is on this mail list, she may answer your question sooner.
