TAEMS, DTC and GPGP constitute an evolved framework for coordination in multi-agent systems. In this paper, we focus on inconsistencies and semantic interpretation problems encountered during implementation of a criteria-driven scheduler. We try to disambiguate and simplify concepts and propose extensions and new features for TAEMS and DTC to improve understanding, use, and integration of the framework in an agent architecture. We propose how to modularise TAEMS/DTC to form a kind of construction kit for local agent coordination and control and extend the scope to also cover domain-dependent context. Throughout, we aim to simplify application and integration of the TAEMS/DTC framework while preserving its core ideas. We also locate our work in the context of current efforts to develop a unified view of coordination in MAS.
