What we have been calling delta specification in WebApps are specifications that add to another. For instance, WARP adds the <access> element to P+C. It doesn't make some huge cut and paste of P+C just because it modifies. This is as much about sane editing practice and being able to work with a team as it is about clean architecture and separation of concerns.

The expectation was that WARP4U would add something to WARP, perhaps attributes, perhaps attribute values, perhaps child elements, and certainly some processing. It's a delta spec. It's not considered to be the next version, it's a different feature set.

I then have to maintain the strongest objection possible to it being published, even as FPWD. Such copying is inappropriate, and will lead to no end of editorial problems. It fosters confusion and brings no value.
