Sorry, I don't agree. I see no reason to extend or broaden or cripple
the definition imaging when print, scan, copy are well defined and
understood all. Also, you want to include projectors and displays but
they are like printers, scanners or copiers. MFD don't do video, audio
and the other technologies involved in modern projectors and displays.
Your definition is growing to include any attached device. I support
focusing on "Printing" which the PWG name implies we are working instead
of add more and different technologies.

Michael, I been investigating "Cloud Imaging" on the WWW.
Beyond referring to actual imaging of clouds; it appears that Cloud
Imaging is associated with actual "images" (photo, picture, ...) and not
with printing (scanning, copying).
Given that we are basically including file transformations as part of
the functional model, and that our definition of imaging devices
includes projectors and displays as well as hardcopy devices, I don't
see a conflict here. We certainly have a broader definition of imaging
than most, but people *will* find us if they search - particularly since
I expect most of our documents and are going to include the words
"cloud" and "printing", "scanning", "fax", etc. as we define those
