Hi Yves, all,

sorry for the delay this causes, but I'm against generalizing to

>From a consumers perspective I can understand the benefit: have a method
that resolves the references, graps the standoff list(s) and is done.

I'm worried about producers, tools or humans. I am not able to say on the
top of my had what attributes can appear on "item". If I count correctly,
currently it would be seven attributes from provenance, and five from
"quality issue". But if I'm producing an "item" element, can it contain
both? Should a consuming application just pass all attributes or validate
against a schema for item validates against proveance or quality issues?
What does that mean for conformance testing?

All these questions are not needed if there are separate wrapper elements
as in the current draft. Also, your questions a) and b) can be solved by
adding to
a statement that what is said here also relates to standoff markup with
provenance and quality issue, and by renaming the section accordingly.

Again, sorry for the delay this causes.
