The artefacts defined in PEAF constitute the EA Meta-model
and some of its content such as Principles.
There are many Meta-models that already exist (for the
reasons defined above) and the lack of a Meta-model has never really been a
reason why EA initiatives fail. For this reason, PEAF does not concentrate on
defining a complete and detailed Meta-model (no point reinventing the wheel).
However, PEAF does defines some important things that are usually missing and
also exposes a higher level structure that people can use to understand how the
detailed Meta-models they wish to use fit and relate.
