too borrow a phrase --- +1

UML is a great tool, for its purpose. Taken too far, it could mean
we need to use mof and xmi, and lots of other sideeffects that I 
am sure you don't intend.

perhaps the goal belongs more in the usage scenario task force?

I am not keen on this as a normative requirement; as someone who uses and
teaches UML
on a regular basis, I believe it to have serious drawbacks as an
architectural tool. It is
best suited to its intended use - software application design (which is
quite different from architecture).

I can live with this if 'should' is changed to 'may'.
