[DR 008, 040] - Summary and proposal

From: Kevin Mitchell <kevin.mitchell@xmls.com>

To: xml-dist-app@w3.org
In an attempt to bring the recent discussions on DR008 ([1]) and DR040 
([2]) to some closure, I would like to propose the following:
a) Agree that existing requirements (e.g. DR700, DR401, DR403, and 
DR600's) will guarantee enough functionality in XP to accomodate a 
reasonable set of use cases concerning arbitrary data.
b) To ensure a), agree to define said use cases.  Many have already been 
suggested during the disscusions on DR008 and DR040 ([3]...[9])
c) Given a) and b), agree to drop DR008 and DR0040. Replace with the 
following statement (not a labeled requirement), based on several 
suggestions from the recent discussions.
"Consistent with its charter, the WG will not define new mechanisms for 
handling arbitrary (to include binary) data.  However, the WG recognizes 
that many XP applications will need to exchange such data. To facilitate 
such implementations, XP should accommodate, but not define, the 
following use cases"
where "the following use cases" would be a link to the use case section.
