    Hi Steve,

    Just thought you might be interested by this comment I just posted at Gareth’s :

    I would be very glad to have your light about what I found there.

    Did I miss something ?

    I read that and found it unconvincing.  The essence of their point seems to be that once they’ve got their content onto a standard platform it will be easier to maintain and refactor, because of the wide availability of tools. I don’t buy that for a start: modelling standards are so far notorious for their lack of interoperability.  But even if it were true, they’ve encountered huge complexity and information loss in their migration; and they seem to conclude that a domain specific target would be better than UML anyway.

    That’s indeed the feeling I eventually got about it. But, as I don’t consider myself being a great modeling specialist, I only found wiser to have your opinion as another input before making mine (opinion) definitely.

    Thank you very much.
