Comment (Feb. 2, 2008, R Brooks)

With regard to the class for serial transformations, this is an excellent and useful idea. However, the paper linked to here does not support the registration framework, where as another paper on the same topic does. [65] That paper, however, has its own set of limitations. I think that a class for serial or combined transforms is a valuable addition. However, I worry that if done prematurely, we would be stuck with a limited interface due to ITKs backwards compatibility policies. I think some serious thought should be put into how this interface should work before committing to a particular implementation.

At the very least i think that any such class should support:

  1. The registration framework - ie - proper Jacobians
  2. An arbitrarily long chain of transformations
  3. The ability to have some fixed and some parameterized transforms - by this i mean that some transformation parameters do not appear in the GetParameters and Jacobian methods.
  4. Some sort of intelligent interaction with the transform reader and writer classes.

I suppose that I should kick myself a bit, for not having reviewed either of these papers. I'll post this to the list as well and see if it spawns discussion.
