Dear Paul, Kevin, Tomasz, and all others,
I see your point when you say that the WG should focus on the deployment of the maDMP overall model. Perhaps it should limit itself to laying the foundation for “plugging in” future BPMN workflows, maybe by including a few related Classes and Properties (in case this model is formalised as an ontology) to reference these models, but without actually embedding them in the model itself?
A future WG could then be created with the goal of creating some sort of “minimum viable product” for a maDMP-compliant repository or workflow software; afterwards, perhaps we can present a revised model with any lessons learned from the engineering side of things if need be.
