Hi,

I haven't seen any reply to my note below.

Harry - can I work on updating these schema this week,
without disrupting your prototyping efforts?

Cheers,
- Ira

Hi,

When next it's convenient for Harry Lewis' prototyping
team at IBM, I'd like to revise and re-release the WIMS
schema set as follows:

(1) Remove 'Any' from element names and types and improve
    documentation of '[Report|Alert|Action]Element' generic
    container elements.

(2) Remove 'Type' from element types and replace with 'WKV'
    (for enumerations) or the null string (for simple types),
    consistent with PWG SM/1.0 naming conventions.

(3) Use 'AgentURIs' and 'AgentURI' to distinguish clearly from
    'SourceURI' and 'TargetURI' (which are context dependent,
    based on request/response and interface).

(4) Rename 'ActionParameters' to 'ActionVendorParameters', 
    for clarity.

(5) Add definitions for needed types for all top-level elements
    (Action, Schedule, Report, Alert, Resource, etc.), in order
    to support existing WIMS operation definitions.

(6) Add definitions of types for other intermediate-level
    elements, as appropriate.

Harry - let me know when it's convenient (I haven't done most of
this work yet).

Cheers,
- Ira
