The view of the OMG is to raise Software Development from handicrafts to an engineering discipline. In pretty much the same way an architect today works on blueprints to make modifications or evolve another product.
Few people who have commisioned a building reject it on completion but it happens all too often in the software industry.
YOu could argue that there hasn't been much variety in the design of buildings lately.

Can you test-drive a model? How else do you know that it works?
I would be very much interested in the point Stan already raised: How does the tight feedback loop work in MDA? Can you test-drive a model? How else do you know that it works?
...There are people who say that MDA *could* be done in an Agile way.

Well, I got to sit and talk with Jon yesterday after his presentation at the Columbus XP Users Group meeting. I taped an hour's worth of our conversation although I think we ran out of tape towards the end of it. At any rate, I hope to be able to transcribe the interview an have excerpts of it in the next JavaRanch journal. Stay tuned...
