In recent years, it has become widely accepted that it is possible to separate teamwork from taskwork, providing support for domainindependent teamwork at an architectural level, using teamwork models. However, existing teamwork models (both in theory and practice) focus almost exclusively on achievement goals, and ignore maintenance goals, where the value of a proposition is to be maintained over time.
