I think we will explore these topics more during implementation.  A lot of
this is clearer (the issues and solutions -- and the issues with the
solutions) when we are actually using them.

Hi Gregg,

Ok how about.

1) A technology or feature isn't in the baseline unless it is named in the
baseline.

2) Baseline 'items' can include technologies, specific features, or well
defined collections.
        - E.g. "embed" could be listed in a baseline definition as a
      separate item but would not be in baseline that listed HTML 4.01
      unless it was listed separately since it is not part of HTML 4.01.

3) If a collection or general technology is specified in the baseline, the
assumption is that all of its subparts, features, modules etc. are in the
baseline unless excluded in the baseline definition.

That works for me. What about items that aren't part of a public
specification that are "relied upon"? Do we intent to make rules about them,
or is that the responsibility of the authority setting the baseline? It's
not a problem for this particular example, as embed is very well supported.

Best regards,

Gez
