DR 702: Simplification and rewording

From: MOREAU Jean-Jacques <moreau@crf.canon.fr>

Message-ID: <3A12B6A5.97C4884F@crf.canon.fr>
To: "xml-dist-app@w3.org" <xml-dist-app@w3.org>
Considering input from [1], [2] and [3], I propose that DR702 be
reworded as Oisin suggests:

DR702 Requirement for Evolution
              The XP specification must define the concept of protocol

              evolution and define a mechanism or mechanisms for
              identifying XP revisions.
              This mechanism or mechanisms must ensure that an XP
              processor, by simple inspection of an XP envelope, may
             determine whether or not the envelope is compatible with
its
             processing capability.

Jean-Jacques.

Original text was:
              The XP specification must define the concept of protocol

              evolution and define a mechanism or mechanisms for
              identifying XP revisions. This mechanism or
              mechanisms must ensure that given two XP messages it
              should be possible, by simple inspection of the
              messages, to determine if they are compatible. The
              specification must define the concepts of backwards
              compatible and backwards incompatible evolution.
              Furthermore, the XP envelope must support both
              optional and mandatory extensibility of applications
              using the XP envelope.
