Great.  Is their a possibility you (working group) could come up with a high
level template that describes the interface (how we plug in) and key
functions/services (what it does) so we can incorporate your efforts in the
Interoperability Clearinghouse.  Our initial focus in on web, object and
component technologies and how they interoperate.

Would be interested in defining that sub-structure that enables these things
to work together.
