I may offer you some help in identification of OMS usage scenarios and 
modeling the associated message data exchanged using abstract data.
Target would be to get as solid basis to develop XML encoding schemes or 
any other encoding schemes.

It is my current understanding that there is currently only one XML 
schema available, which describes the direction from the service to the 
While this schema applies to all response messages and does describe 
what is currently transfered, I'd like to focus on the long term needs 
of OMS in order to get the structure right.

Especially I'd like to separate the discussion on what is transfered 
('structure') from the discussion on how it is encoded ('encoding').
Hopefully protocol background will be useful here.

To spend that effort is only useful, if significant changes to the REST 
PI are needed in the mid term. I am curios to hear what others think 
about that.
