Hi Pete,

In section 4.1, can we formally define what we mean by "transform" ?  I think some folks have a specific use-case that narrows the scope of the transformation process, such as "transforming a document from Postscript to PDF" or whatever.

I think in my earlier discussion of human language transformation (i.e, US-English to EU-Spanish), we found out that there were (at least to me) undocumented meanings built into the model about what we mean by "transformation".

I can't remember where we left that discussion regarding human language transformation, but it didn't seem to fit one or more operations or functional assumptions that have already been documented.

I would like to an unambiguous definition of "transformation" early in the document -- if it's in there and I missed it, can you provide a ref ?

--

Also, in 4.2 regarding things that are "out of scope"… #1 and #2 in this section seem very interesting…we should make a mental note that maybe these should become work items for some other effort by the PWG, since cloud services already exist for functionality listed in #1.

Thanks!
Randy
