[Moims-dai] Draft proposals: Future work and CMC pitch

Since it is unlikely I’ll make the next Telecon (heading to Canada), I thought I’d offer a perspective or two on the slide showing a possible abstract data layer. Unlike with various targeted communication protocols dealing with spacecraft, the scope of the existing data services is much more diverse in my opinion.  That said, it would be an interesting challenge to explore.  My approach would be to divide up the ‘data space’ much as shown in your diagram, and then have one or two people develop a starting set of services for each space.  Then do an investigation of the actual services in whatever scope of applicability (all communities, only certain disciplines, etc.) was set for the abstract layer in order to not miss any that are important.

Do we know if  anyone has tried generating a broadly applicable abstraction for general data?
