Dear Laurent,

Thanks you very much for your comments! They were still on time, and the
published XGR document should address all your comments (see below).

> The document is not error-free about NewsML-G2:
> The name of the NAR has been changed by the IPTC to "News Architecture
> for G2 standards" and NewsML-G2 is now the name of the (future) IPTC
> standard focused on general news (text/photo/graphics/audio/video).
> NewsML (V1.2 being the latest version) is kept as the name of the
> current IPTC standard with its current syntax.
> All the references to NewsML have been clarified, since the document
> is talking about the G2 standards and not about the previous NewsML
> v1.2.
> It would be also worth noting that EBU is working or replacing P/Meta
> by NewsML-G2.
> The document now contains a note specifying that EBU is currently
> working on replacing P/Meta by NewsML-G2.
> Note: Another misleading fact is that XMP (the Adobe framework) is
> merged with the "IPTC Metadata for XMP" standard, which relies on XMP
> for expressing still image metadata. Therefore IPTC4XMP should be
> included as a "Multimedia Metadata Formats For Describing Still
> Images" (this may be soon the most used one in fact, as soon as the
> legacy IPTC headers fade away from photo processing softwares).
> This section has also been clarified, distinguishing from the XMP
> specification from Adobe with the "IPTC Metadata for XMP".
> But the important part is: NewsML-G2 is considered by the W3C MMSEM as
> a multimedia metadata format that is worth considering.
> Thanks to RaphaŽl Troncy, member of the MMSEM group, for his interest.
> Hope we will find some time to achieve a work on an OWL ontology for
> NewsML-G2.
> Absolutely! The documentation of a proposed formalization of NewsML-G2
> into OWL is almost complete and should be ready for review by all
> interested NewsML-G2 folks during August.

Best regards.
