Thanks for the clarification Jean. 

If people should not be forced to find information on any other level and the AUI meta-model should act as an interchange format, I get the feeling references the domain model are missing.  But I have to admit that I don't fully see how all pieces of MBUI specifications fit together yet. 

I am looking at it from top most layer, the final UI. What meta-models are needed to provide this part? At the end of a design process that follows a model driven approach according to the models evolved from this working group, what interchange documents are created? Which ones are optional? 

I did assume that the reification between Task Model and AUI already covers domain model references, parameter binding, etc. But maybe that was wrong? Does this belong to the CUI level?
