Hello,

One month ago there was a message to this list announcing uploading an
Internet-Draft draft-yevstifeyev-disclosure-relation-00
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/spec-prod/2011OctDec/0008.html) -
the link too the draft:
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-yevstifeyev-disclosure-relation/.
 At that time there were apparently no comments from people on this
list.  I've also requested a review on link-relations@ietf.org list,
which revealed no substantive comments as well.

The point of the draft was to register the 'disclosure' link relation
type, which has been in active use of W3C for some 8 years, per
Publication Policies.  That's what we currently have in the draft.

Later, I asked to publish the draft as an Informational RFC, and IETF
Last Call was initiated.  During the Last Call, some editorial
comments were received, which I agreed with.

However, my draft also expanded the semantics of the relation to cover
separate patent disclosures, not only a list thereof.  But later,
during the Last Call, I proposed the following change: to distinguish
the semantics of a relation for patent disclosure and a list of patent
disclosures, thus changing the following Section of the draft:

2. 'disclosure' Link Relation Type

   Whenever the 'disclosure' relation is defined, the target IRI MUST
   either

   (1) designate a list of patent disclosures, or

   (2) refer to a particular patent disclosure made with respect to the
       material being referenced by context IRI.

to:

2. 'disclosure' Link Relation Type

   Whenever the 'disclosure' relation is defined, the target IRI
   [RFC5988] MUST refer to a particular patent disclosure made with
   respect to the material being referenced by context IRI.

3. 'disclosure-list' Link Relation Type

   Whenever the 'disclosure' relation is defined, the target IRI MUST
   designate a list of patent disclosures made with respect to the
   material being referenced by context IRI.

I do understand that such definition is not how W3C currently uses the
relation type, and that's why my proposed change initiated active
debate on ietf@ietf.org list.  Per a message received from Thomas
Roessler I'd like to seek consensus on this change on this list.  More
specifically, will W3C agree to use 'disclosure-list' relation type
instead of 'disclosure' once both are defined as proposed?

I would appreciate your responses before Thursday, Jan 5.

Thanks you for your time and happy New Year,
Mykyta Yevstifeyev
