Hi Raj
Good to hear from you.

Well, this is totally biased approach toward the vector world. Speaking
about interoperability, I would request OGC to have a means to distinguish
between Vector and Raster WMS service, while doing the CITE Tests.

I see more and more WMS engines coming out to support raster by

At the upcoming OSGeo benchmarking 2009, one of the requirement is to test
GeoTIFF as WMS service. I wonder how OGC will certify if their is a server
that gives the ultimate performance in WMS but falling thru cracks just
because OGC wont certify that as valid WMS server, while all the specs
(image) of 1.1.1 and 1.3.0 are implemented.

Hope you can throw some light on this.
