[copied WIMS mailing list, to get comments from other people]
Your list of dispositions for dubious/ambiguous/misplaced properties
in CIM_Printer class for Phase 2 looks fine to me.
Note that in the latest version of my CIM Refresh document, I did
specifically change the Description clauses for Horizontal/Vertical
to clarify their relationship to the (already aligned) Printer MIB
and IPP attributes.
Since I haven't started on the Phase 1 changes for other classes,
I'm not sure what we may find there for Phase 2.
I plan to start on Phase 1 for CIM_PrintService this week.
I'm also trying to get a working WSDL/1.1 for WIMS together, so I
may be a little slow with the CIM work.

Subject: FW: Work items for phase 2.
Ira, just in case you didn't have enough to do to stave off
boredom :-) , here's a fun distraction.
I propose the following approximate list of things to do in the
PWG-CIM alignment phase 2. Please complete the list with any items
that you notice are missing. And suggest how we shall divvy these up.
PWG-CIM alignment, phase 2
1. Deprecate properties that cannot be implemented interoperably.
2. Move (deprecate and add) some properties from CIM_Printer to
3. Improved explanations for other ambiguous properties, whatever
ones we didn't get in phase 1.
For instance, longer explanations in CIM_Printer.HorizontalResolution
and Vertical Resolution about how these should be derived from SNMP
correspondence or from common sense in the case of non-SNMP printers.
(Do we want to fix the non-metric units for these properties?)
(These are really DefaultXxxx but badly named.)
Include semantic descriptions of
- their impact on the operation of the printer;
- how their values are changed;
- when a changed value takes effect.
