Hi Chris,

Ah, in this case, I think we will proceed with the existing short names, 
xforms and xforms11, which current point respectively to XForms 1.0 Third 
Edition Rec and XForms 1.1 CR.  In other words, we will proceed with our 
newsletter using the current names and then issue another letter when 
there is any change of available names.

In the new year, Ian, Steven, you and I can discuss what should be done 
here.

Thanks,

Ian Jacobs seems to be saying that shortnames for minor version
numbers should not be used. I (and some others) are arguing against
that.
