If you don't agree with this resolution, then please respond.  If you have 
a better rationale, than please respond.

LC-66 Are edition and version DoVs?
(DM's email discusses this- 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2003Mar/0104.html.)
No. Editions and versions are not DoVs.  The SpecGL applies to a single, 
specific specification rather than all its incarnations.  DoVs have to do 
with Implementations and what they implement in the current 
specification.  Conformance is also assessed with respect to the current 
specification.  So, from LC-66, if a requirement is changed between V1.0 
and V1.1 of some specification and a 1.0 processor can not read 1.1, then 
the processor would not conform. This isn't related to DoV.

thanks.
Lynne
