Thanks for the reminder.  Yes, we had discussed this, but apparently I
didn't record it in my notes.  And with the "mind like a steel sieve"
these days, it got lost.  Will fix.  

Also, maybe I wanted the name to fit across a page.  :-)

Hi Rick,

Good diagrams and instance examples, but...

XxxCounters should be XxxStatisticalData everywhere (per existing CIM
usage), including our base class ImagingStatisticalData which SHOULD be
derived from CIM_StatisticalData and NOT from CIM_ManagedElement (as in
this Visio).

One existing CIM classes end in 'Counts'.   Two end in 'Counters'.
Eight end in 'StatisticalData'.  Note that older
(complex keys) is now obsoleted by 'StatisticalData' (simple InstanceID
key), so there are a number of 'StatisticalInformation' as well.

Thus - ImagingXxxStatisticalData.

- Ira
