Right, I agree... this is how I see it, also which is why I'm surprised 
that there is contention about this fitting within the (proposed) Charter.

I see your second option as they way to solve the first option.  This 
doesn't make them two different problems.  It seems to me that maybe 
management/monitoring through the firewall is the charter and using SOAP 
and XML in a device is the scope/requirement on how to do this.  Of 
course, for legacy devices with SNMP, there will need to be a proxy to 
handle this.  I'm not sure that I'm using the terminology for scope and 
requirement correctly but this is how I see the problem resolved.

I'd like to try and resolve some of the (unfortunate) differences we are 
having regarding Charter, Scope, Requirements. 

>From what I can decipher, there is a well established interest in solving 
the problem "I've been getting at my (device)  management data remotely, 
within my enterprise just fine... but, now, how can I access it across the 
firewall" (maybe to provide services to multiple enterprises etc.). 

Others also want to solve... "... and what is the standard protocol and 
data model that lends itself to the web services environment that may be 
employed by proxy servers and/or directly in the embedded device". 

Of course, we will have legacy SNMP devices to manage for quite some time 
but I don't think the current existence of SNMP is the answer to the 2nd
