So if we support such things we'd be an ECM. Sounds hard to do but  
then look at how alfresco does it?


They have a repository with workflow just like us except they just  
integrate with image capture systems and can manage the formats in a  
nice enough way to index and display them. Plone doesn't have to do  
these things out of the box, it just needs to integrate.
I know at least one group doing TRIM integration with Plone now. If  
they open source it then thats one route for image capture into Plone.
I guess what I'm saying is that its probably easier to be classified  
as an ECM than we think.
