During our weeklong meeting in Cambridge, there seemed
to be a lot of interest in discussing UML and its possible 
application to some W3C recommendations. 

Such applications could take many different forms, but
the following two seem to be the most immediate.  First, 
UML could be useful as a formalism which can be applied 
to help verify infosets involved.  Second, UML can be
an educational tool, using diagrams to help clarify exactly 
what is being proposed, both in terms of content and behavior, 
and thereby improve understandability.

I think we have strong expertise in this area across 
several working groups.  Please speak up if you think that 
such an interest group is a good idea.

Best regards,
