MAWG Resolution:

Proposed definition of ma:policy

Thank you for this proposal, we agree that this is better than the
current definition of ma:policy, which has a policy attribute that can
be either a string or URI. We will adopt your proposed definition of
ma:policy, and include your examples to illustrate the use of this property.

- Recommended vocabulary for ma:policy.type

We will add that it is recommended to use a subset of policy related
terms of the Meta information from the XHTML Vocabulary [1] for

- Overlap between ma:policy and ma:copyright

We agree with your comment that there is an overlap between ma:copyright
and the case of using the ma:policy element to express a copyright
statement. The decision to keep ma:copyright despite this overlap was
made for reasons of usability and compatibility with current industry
practice, as discussed by David Singer on the mailing list (see thread
starting with [2]). Given this requirement, the only option to
completely avoid overlap would be to define ma:copyright and ma:policy
as mutually exclusive, which we do not consider a good option, as it
would rather discourage making use of ma:policy and providing more
detailed information. ma:copyright and ma:policy can co-exist in an
annotation to serve different needs, even if they are partially
overlapping in some cases.
