HI all,

I have a question raising from the minutes (sorry I could not connect
today).

If title of the draft is "6TiSCH CoAP data Model" this means that in the
future we will have "6TiSCH *foo *data Model". Is that the direction we
want? Data Model is the way to represent message content (i.e what goes in
the payload and is used by 6top commands). Why is this specific to CoAP?

Another aspect is interaction models, i.e message flows which in that case
they are related to the capabilities of the transport mechanism.

just thoughts..  Sorry if I really go back to something you already
discussed and it is really clear.
