WSD issue 168 / Requirement R114 chronology

From: David Booth <dbooth@w3.org>

This is the chronology of R114 that I found.  In short, R114 was accepted 
by the WG on 4 April 2002 and appeared in the 14 April 2002 draft as 
accepted.  However, the wording in the 24 April 2002 draft was weakened, 
but there is no mention of this change in the minutes of the intervening 
meetings.

My own personal take on this is that there probably was a reason why the 
wording was changed, and it may have even been discussed by the WG (though 
not minuted), but because neither the decision nor the rationale to change 
the wording were documented in the minutes, the change should not be viewed 
as a WG decision.

Minutes of 4 April 2002 teleconference (approved 18 April 2002):

Jeff: Req R114 is a must and it says: Any on-the-wire message can be
unambiguously mapped to an operation.
