I think it’s a great idea to put together an unambiguous reference diagram like this — It looks like the arrows in the diagram suggest elements of procedure, but I’m assuming that each type of cloud functional procedure description would reference this diagram in order to completely specify “how things work”. The arrows just emphasize what’s defined in the functional spec.

>> Because we seem to be tripping over differences in terminology and our collective "big picture" of how cloud-based imaging is supposed to work, I put together the attached simplified diagram for a typical MFD that is registering Print, Scan, and FaxOut with a public cloud. Each of the local services is "connected" to a corresponding service in the cloud. I have purposely not included any fan-out in the diagram in order to focus our discussions on this simplified model. We can expand our discussions once there is agreement on the simplified model/diagram.
