Thanks Sebastian,

I was not really think about maintaining the model at run-time,
although it might be interesting.

Rather, I was under the impression that we were defining an abstract
syntax to which to map existing metamodels.

Of course, this could also be the basis for the development of a new
language and tool.

I think that the document has to be clear with respect to this, i.e.
which is the purpose of the language definition.

As, proposed by Gerritt, we can spend some time tomorrow to clarify this issue
