    I'd add:

    C) Allow system entities to use standard XML tools and the PWG (and
    potentially other) schemas to determine that a request is well formed
    D) Facilitate development around the PWG semantic model by creating
    schema structures that expose both objects and values through commonly used
    development tools

    As for B), I'd say the semantic model certainly needs to enable capabilities
    to be ascertained, but I'm not honestly sure whether it's in scope for the
    SM project to "completely" solve this. It may be sufficient here just to
    declare the objects & values in such a way that they can be readily used by
    capabilities schemes, and that the "full" capabilities problem will be
    solved in forums like PSI & UPDF.
