As CESG Chair I have the following comments to the MOIMS response to MOSSG 

The MOSSG report is generally very supportive of the MOIMS work, although 
concerns are raised on their slow adoption. Once the report is approved by 
the IOAG, it assumed that it should be promoted by the IOAG, thus speeding 
up adoption by missions. How can the IOAG and CCSDS team up to best 
achieve this?
Missions usually adopt published standards. Its slow motion is justified 
by the lack of a minimum suite of SM&C standards that guarantees 
IOAG has not given any priority to the Catalogue 3. MOSSG did it (but it 
is the opinion of the SG members and not the result of an IOAG Agency wide 
poll). CCSDS' comment will be to take them out in order to follow the same 
process and format of SC #1 and 2. IOAG has its internal procedure to do 
CCSDS shall issue a common and global comment for all 3 IOAG SCs (1, 2 and 
3) wrt slow adoption by missions due to long elapsed time for production 
of standards (associated with the lack of resources)
Just to give an example: When comparing our current Projects wrt SC#1 and 
taking out the already published standards (6), we have  3 Approved , 6 
Drafts and 6 not yet existing Projects. This means 36 resouces from all 
SC#2 status is worse
CESG Chair Suggestion: Issue global comment for all IOAG SCs  on slow 
adoption by mission and lack of CCSDS resources to implement them

Considering the bullet above and the many comments/clarifications raised 
on the draft Catalog#3, it is suggested that a small joint team, 
MOSSG-MOIMS, initiate a technical discussion to refine Catalog#3.
I disagree. CCSDS needs to produce recommendations and leave away this 
notion to continuously create new joint teams. 
The idea was that the MOSSG completes its task after approval of the 
As both MOSSG Chairs are members of the SM&C WG (one of them being the 
Chair), the technical discussion is guaranteed within the CCSDS MOIMS SM&C 
WG. The Rome meeting is the ideal venue to discuss it from the technical 
point of view. Telecons and San Antonio meeting will also address this 
CESG Chair suggestion: Enforce technical discussion of SC# 3 in the next 2 
Technical meeting (Rome and San Antonio) and the usual monthly telecons.

R1.1: The recommendation is generally well received that we should focus 
on a limited number of functional areas, however several comments have 
been raised on the scope of the high priority functional areas (see 
Calatog#3). In any case, even if minor misalignment in scope exists, we 
would like to give priority to the books that are close to publication.
No comments shall be raised on priorities, because they are a consensus of 
the SG members and not the result of an agreed IOAG Agencies poll.
CESG Chair Suggestion: Raise a global comment on SC#3: Take priorities out

I plan to circulate the 1st draft of the CCSDS Presentation to IOAG by
