The DPF may well encompass ontology's for device properties and

the scope of DPF. However, it is the intent of the Device Independence
Working Group [DIWG] to specify representations of ontology's through
[OWL], as well as presentation characteristics through Core Presentation
Characteristics [ref-CPC]. Consequently, the DPF provides mechanisms
to access device properties and characteristics whose ontology's and
accessing interfaces are specified elsewhere.
