Michael, you should have participated in OWS-5!

Imagery workflow was a major topic. You can see some screencasts here: http://www.opengeospatial.org/pub/www/ows5/demo.html

There are some relevant Engineering Reports coming out of the project:
- Georeferencable Imagery ER (JPIP/SOS/WPS/WCS)
- OWS Workflow Architecture

They're not posted to pending documents yet, but will be in a week or  
(sorry OGC members only right now)

There's also been some related discussion on these Google Groups:
- http://groups.google.com/group/wfxml
- http://groups.google.com/group/geo-web-rest
