The "title" contains the event name 
but perhaps a wider CADF-like category would be good. And
we should have a close eye on ensuring we're capturing the broadest
CADF attributes now.

That said, CADF and schemas are complimentary. Once we have the
existing data mapped we should be able to determine which parts fit in
the CADF envelope directly and which parts need to go in the
"attachment" part (which will still need a separate schema definition). These
attachments could lead the way to changes to the core CADF spec. The
CADF team has stated they're receptive to that.

The notification driver can output the desired wire protocol.

Agreed. I suspect we'll be adding a common object to
which will contain all that version stuff. Next round for sure. 
This was just to capture what we have now.
