If the objective is to create an information model based on the superset of SMI (SPPI) or SMIng, I would agree with you. However, it is not clear yet whether people want to do a full OO information model based on some new or existing language (for example UML/MOF), or whether they want to develop an information model based on some SMI derivative. While the BOF discussions seemed to favor the latter, the list discussions seem far more evenly split.
