Hi Jeremy and Mark,

Interoperability aspirations

As far as we can tell, DPF does aspire to providing interoperability  
between devices and applications developed fairly independently  
rather than having a tight coupling between devices and applications.

However, no mechanism is provided for publishing the description of  
the properties supported by a particular device, or for publishing a  
description of the properties needed by a particular application.  
Without such mechanisms, functioning systems will require close  
cooperation between the device and application developement teams.  
There has been work both in CC/PP and within the OMA in UAProf on  
this problem, so there needs to be some coordination to ensure these  
approaches are compatible.


The DPF Working Group consider publishing properties beyond the scope  
of the DPF.
