Hi Mehran,

thanks for the clarification. My interpretation was coming primarily from the examples in the
powerpoint from GMV, and not from the draft standard.
For this we could then add some example of use based on files like you explain below so that all type
of users are catered for.

Regarding the data format and my previous comments with Dan, one important aspect when dealing 
with product is also to facilitate/allow  the distribution/access to product related metadata; when they 
are physically embedded into the data then it is not a problem but when the metadata is  separated and
logically associated it is.

The most important case of required metadata (but not the only one) is the format specification/data-dictionary. 
So I would foresee the ability for service to support request and distribution for any data of the
relevant (user defined)  formatspec files (regardless of what they are).

Look at the service specifications, the concepts and data types for product in the attached draft book and product definition details and catalogue entry and you will see that the service is deliberately kept generic to support any kind of data product distribution.
