Scott, I agree with your interpretation 100% and believe this is the on=
ly valid
interpretation. Otherwise, I think the overall charter would have been =
way too
limiting - even if this is where we ended up for v1. I put the emphasis=
to show how I think some must be reading the charter and the conclusion=
s they
must have made.

When I read:

I assume CLIENT/SERVER in the distributed systems architecture sense
NOT in the literal CLIENT =3D PC and SERVER =3D file server/printer ser=
ver hardware
box sense. I see client/server meaning request/response rather than di=
remote methods, IIOP, RMI stuff.

In other workds, I am not confused into thinking end-user to file serve=
r only
(not server
to device) when I see the term "client/server"

Good reading of the charter thought, very helpful.
