Hi Brain, Pascal and all,
I think both what we actually did in the current 6top-interface draft, and what we are going to redo as Thomas and Xavi suggested in the last Webex, are Yang date model of 6top, instead of information model. Thus, I think we need to re-word the Charter accordingly. Make sense? 
In addition, the attached file presents clear definition on both interface model and Yang model.

I don't think the problem is in a *document*. Benoit is questioning the
wording of the proposed charter.  I would suggest reviewing his comments
in light of the current wording of the new charter text.
