ISSUE-254 (DDC 1.1): Revision of DDC and Retroactive Effect on BP1 [Best Practices Document]

http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/BPWG/Group/track/issues/

Raised by: Jo Rabin
On product: Best Practices Document

My ACTION-698 has me raising this issue, 

Fwiw: If we are to revise the DDC to include support for PNG then we are saying that you can't be a Web capable device unless you support PNG. (We already say implicitily that you can't be a Web capable device if you don't support GIF and JPEG).

If we are to make this change, or indeed any other change to the DDC, now would be the time to do it, i.e. prior to Last Call IV on mobileOK Basic which could be adjusted to suit, if necessary.

here is the context:

Back to ADC

    Jo: agenda is to talk about mobileOK, but before that, I'd like to
    come back to Jonathan's input on ADC
    ... The thing is we need to update DDC for BP2
    ... for instance, support for PNG may be assumed
    ... The suggestion is BP2 contains a revised version of DDC and
    reviewed BPs of BP1

    Bryan: The presence of DDC without saying that it does not limit the
    best practices of BP2 might lead to confusion

    Jo: Yes, we need to be clear that it's the minimal delivery context,
    not the target but the baseline
    ... If you know nothing about the target, then assume (revised) DDC
    ... Other than PNG, I don't really think DDC needs changing
    ... I'll raise an issue on that

    <jo> ACTION: JR to raise issue of revising DDC and to raise
    discussion of the revised definition being retroactive to BP1
    [recorded in
    [92]http://www.w3.org/2008/03/04-bpwg-minutes.html#action13]

    to raise discussion of the revised definition being retroactive to
    BP1 [on Jo Rabin - due 2008-03-11].
