Maciej, can you tell if the group is specifically focusing on details 
element as a replacement? Or if it's going some other direction, such as 
summary element? I think you were in the phone conference, and minutes 
are so hard to decipher.

The reason I ask is that I'm trying to decide how I should write up my 
proposal on Issue 93, and whether I should encompass 
details-as-new-summary in my argument. I can update my change proposal 
afterwards, but I'd really like to present more or less a final work by 
the end of March.

If it's still open as a possibility, than I'll also include the use of 
the element as a summary attribute replacement in my argument, and our 
issues are still cross-dependent.

Also, what's the date when the Issue 32 change proposal will be 
submitted to this group? You have n/a, and that doesn't help me figure 
out what I need to do.

Thanks

Shelley
