   I re-read this *again* - It looks like an April fool joke.

   Then I checked the date - the documents says April 2002

   The 2'nd hit of the Google query "omg mof 1 april"

   Now follow the link - it leads to a page caled "OMG process deadlines"

   Half way down the pages is:

       April 1, 2005	Org. Structure Metamodel RFP (Voting List Deadline)

   So there we have it.

   Is the OMG MOF model an elaborate April Fools joke?
