> 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 ma:policy.type.
> - 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.
