Stuart,

For the TAG to decide for Web Architectural consideration:

-Should W3C package, maintain (as new standards emerge) and promote
 use of Catalogs of it's various XML Schemata?

Simple yes or no finding is all I need.  I am in favor as expressed in
the earlier email along with my motivation and some architectural
points.

How that happens if approved will fall on W3C Systems and
Communications Teams to get started and hopefully get some momentum
taken by OS vendors and community.  I already have some thoughts on
implementation and strategy.

Much obliged,
