    * Terminology: 'force' was chosen over 'pressure'.
    * The <ink> element is now formally defined in a new section. This new section introduces the documentID attribute.
    * X and Y are no longer required to be first in the <traceFormat>
    * The trace syntax has been simplified, mostly by removing the letter codes.
    * More details and an example of the syntax of the <desc> element have been added.
    * The <metadata> element has been added.
    * References are now listed in an appendix.
    * A new section on the notational conventions used in this document.
    * The timestamps section has been modified, mainly to align with definitions used in the EMMA language
    * A new appendix containing the InkML MIME type.
    * Various fixes: typos, formatting, etc.
