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.

Response:

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