Outcome: Added a summary to the Persistence E&C document.. The persistence E&C document was approved by the SIG to be sent for peer review.

Began editing the Utilities E&C document: first issue is which process modeling components (PMCs) are primary PMCs that must implement ICapeUtilities.One item of agreement is that future business specification documents need to state clearly which PMCs are primary PMCs requiring implementation of ICapeUtilties.
