[I've removed recipients whom I believe to be on at least one of 
the lists.]

The decision tree could be written down like this (if possible, 
read using a fixed-pitch font):

   Q: Does the W3C consider that, in the absence of CURIEs, there 
      is a serious gap between requirements and solutions?

      Y: Does the W3C consider that CURIEs provide a good solution 
         to this gap?

         Y: Done.

         N: Devise a better solution.

      N: The W3C and the rest of the World (Wide Web) agree to 
         differ*.

* At Reuters, we have been using CURIEs, initially without that 
  name, for two years and eleven months.

  At the IPTC, we incorporated CURIEs, initially without that 
  name, into NewsML 2 nine months ago.  We subsequently adopted 
  the name CURIE, in the light of Mark Birbeck's work.
