Thanks for the explanation Peter.
Now I think that you are agree with me that to take the most from HDA  
you need some management tool.
I am not talking to have this complex system developed at CORE but  
something simple and easy for the small studios that use tools that  
can be used by big houses to develop their own management systems  
(like the otlversion command for example)
In my opinion SESI did really well with the character picker and pose  
library tools, something like this, in the browser will be great. The  
pose library for example is not the most advanced tool, but it works  
out of the box and for a small studio do the job and if you need to  
extent it you can.
