The Cloud Service Management Operations are directed to the Cloud service and only manage the Cloud service. We don't relay them through the Proxy to the Local service and have no way to do so in the current model - all out of scope for a long time. Similarly, there is no way to remotely manage the Proxy - out of scope.
All client-initiated job-based services that span between the Cloud and Local services are in scope for the Cloud Imaging Requirements and Model:
- FaxIn does not span and jobs are not client-initiated. It should be out of scope.
- FaxOut MAY span and has client-initiated jobs. Cloud-based FaxOut through a Local service should be in scope. Purely Cloud FaxOut (with the fax modem in the cloud too) is the same as SM FaxOut and should be out of scope. Similarly, FaxOut from the Local Device should be out of scope since either a) the Cloud isn't involved or b) it *is* involved in some way, but not using the interface in this document.
- Print spans and has client-initiated jobs. It should be in scope.
- Resource does not span and has no jobs. It should be out of scope.
- Scan spans and has client-initiated jobs. If should be in scope.
- Transform does not span. It should be out of scope.

However, I do get the sense that there is no interest in including FaxIn so unless someone suggestst that it is desirable, I will eliminate it. We are, of course, rethinking things we had settled some time ago. Any other Services we should drop? What about CloudFaxOut? CloudScan?

>> My $0.02 CAD - Cloud FaxIn is out-of-scope, not only because of prototyping but because remote management is out of scope already (as Bill points out) and any local-to-Cloud push of incoming faxes sure looks a lot like a regular client-to-Cloud interaction that we don't need to be involved in...
