Hi Michel,

Thanks for your comments.  There definitely will need to be more 
specific deliverables identified at some point.  I guess I'm thinking of 
it initially as an umbrella under which various specific milestones and 
deliverables will be identified and pursued as the group prioritizes its 
work.  The intent of the draft is to explicitly call out the overall 
goal of using RDF to achieve semantic interoperability, under which many 
sub-goals would need to be pursued along the say.  The other HL7 
charters I read were all quite short -- one or two pages -- but maybe it 
would be good to include a bit more detail?
