    I see the set of MFD specification enhancing the development of workflow
    solutions. The MFD specification clarifies the common semantics used by
    the various user perceived MFD functions. I expect an orchestration
    service/application would oversee the execution of complex jobs and
    handle task sequencing and task status rollup and processing. The
    orchestration service/application can leverage industry standards (e.g.
    WSCI, BPEL4WS, JDF), be market or vendor specific or, perhaps,
    eventually select one of those and create MFD orchestration service in
    its own right.

    I understand your approach to having a set of MFD specifications that do
    not require or is based on a workflow model/architecture. Since, you
    are currently the most knowledgeable about the MFD specification/schema,
    do you see anything that would impede the development of a workflow
