Hi Bill,

yes, I guess my definition of the work  to be done for cloud printing would be:

"What happens to our model when we move the print server into the cloud?"

I guess I was trying to narrow the focus of the Cloud Imaging WG to identify ONLY those things that change when we do move the print server into the cloud

It just seemed like a lot of the work we were doing with job tickets, mapping,etc. was stuff that had value in a non-Cloud application, so doing this in the Cloud WG would not be appropriate (given the name of our working group)

Other mappings, such as JDF and IPDS, MODCA and CIM were added later by others, with the effort enlarged to a standards track activity. The intent here was not related to Cloud Imaging and, realistically, the effort belongs in the Semantic Model WG, not the Cloud WG. By the way, the PWG Job Ticket activity was a Semantic Model, not a Cloud project.

Further, you and others have asserted that the printing aspects of Cloud Printing are no different from  Print Service based printing. Therefore, the Cloud WG activity is largely limited to modeling the interface between the Cloud Print Manager (read the printer) and the Cloud service (no longer called the Cloud Print Service). This interface has already been largely defined in the Semantic Model.

Should some volunteers appear to at least do a modeling of what you call the Cloud Specific aspects, that might be a reasonable activity for the Cloud WG.
