Yes. By sharing of our UML models we can avoid complicated merging of
different metamodels (built by different people/groups) in the phase of
unification and preparing one common metamodel. I think that since the
beginning we could circulate our model fragments by email in order to be
"inspired" by each other... but they should be also placed into some
web-based archive/repository... and all our working artifacts as well...
that's why I asked Jim about FIPA Modeling TC Web pages some days ago.

Ok. Rational Rose is good also for me.
