Hi,

[For review during our WIMS WG session next week at PWG F2F]

Based on review during WIMS teleconferences and email, an updated
PWG Power Management Model is posted at:

 ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimspower10-20091007.pdf / doc
 - Clean version with line numbers

 ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimspower10-20091007-rev.pdf / doc
 - Redlined version with line numbers

This version defines all intended content - minor issues of
conformance requirements remain - also, more use cases
would be desirable.

Cheers,
- Ira
