What's of interest is the analysis of needs in 10744 (Hytime).  Section
6.5.7, "activity tracking policy" defines "six possible activities,
specified by the attribute _activity types_ (_actypes_):
        create  The object was created
        modify  The object was modified
        link    A link to the object was created ...
        access  The object was accessed
        unlink  A link to the object was deleted ...
        delete  The object was deleted
"An activity tracking policy element states the conditions under which its
activities will be 'tracked' (that is, reported to a program that
performs or supports one or more activity tracking applications),
and the actions(s) to be taken to perform the tracking."

Aside from the SGML syntax and the loose definition of tracking,
what Hytime is giving you here is the six actions.  I wouldn't think
of representing this info in SGML, though.

How does one "see" ISO 10744, or anything specific written about it? This
is the first I've heard of this model.
