  1. I don't think we should use "TIWG" in page title. Maybe call it "Application Use Cases"?
  2. Where should this appear? We started a section for Use Cases as part of the Exchange discussion (See architecture section at the bottom of the Main wiki page.
  3. Here is a partial comparison of the document structure used for the previous cases with that proposed here:
