Conversation with Ivan:

Alan:
There's some interest in having something like a quick reference  
card. Formatting/typesetting of this card would be important, in  
order to have it fit on the page, etc. However Peter pointed out that  
this may not be to the W3C's liking for reasons of accessibility,  
viewing on any device, etc, so I was tasked with an action to ask you  
about what guidelines are with respect to this.

There's a semantic web one that someone produced that is inspiration.

Basically we're still trying to avoid a situation where we create  
redundant documents. This  would be a creative way of handling an  
important function of the overview  and there was general agreement  
in the UFDTF that this sort of thing is useful.

Ivan:

AFAIK, such cards have been produced before both for OWL and SPARQL  
(but I may be wrong). But never as an 'official' W3C deliverable.

Peter is right that there would be quite a problem with W3C producing  
a W3C recommendation or any other document in PDF (only). If somebody  
could come up with a clever way of achieving the same effect with CSS  
(and then have it in forms of PDF, too), well, that could work.  
Otherwise we keep it non-official.
