Sorry to be responding on September 1, but I really feel strongly about keeping Specialized Domain Semantics. I thought I had contributed three other usage examples for this use case, two of which are very similar to what Tzviya just offered. I don't know what happened to them. There are many, many examples of where this is not just useful but in many cases critically important to publishers.

Hi All,

Please take a look at this pull request and confirm that you are OK with this proposal of removing what had been the “Other” and “Misc Requirements” sections of PWP-UCR.

The one use case that I pause over is what had been labeled 9.3:

“9.3 Specialized Domain Semantics


Placeholder: Formal usage terms and engineering or legal documents, possibly for accessibility also.
Specialized semantics are required for users and processors.”

While I agree that we have a need for specialized semantics,  I am not sure that this document is the right place to identify the need.

Some potential use cases could include:

TextBookPublisher organizes some of its publications around learning objectives (as opposed to chapters). Every paragraph, question, and assessment in the publication is associated with a learning objective. For processing purposes, the publisher requires a method of identifying the objects that are learning objectives. Users require a method of accessing the learning objectives from other parts of the publication.

Georgina is publishing a paper with groundbreaking mathematical information. She indicates which part of the paper is the proof using specialized, discoverable vocabularies so that she can share her work with others.

There are numerous other use cases. I hesitate to add a section to the document for this alone. Does it belong here at all? Where can we add it?

Reminder: As of 1 September, we enter a feature freeze so that Nick and Heather can edit.
