Updated documents are now available at:


Document services are a generalization over services for documents such as: spelling checking, grammar checking, proofreading, fact checking, and mathematical proof and argumentation checking. Document services are relevant to both document authoring and document reviewing scenarios. Imagine being able to check, in real-time, if a document has any informational, warning, or error messages with respect to its factuality or any steps of its reasoning. Tools for authoring and reviewing documents, in these regards, would be useful across sectors, across industry, academia, military, and government, with specific applicability to journalism, encyclopedias, digital textbooks, and science.

A new development is that, with a combination of document metadata and CSS-based and/or XPath-based selector syntax, document services can be declared and described for documents without having to specify how document authors should use markup. That means that, for the fact-checking scenario, no new markup is needed for URI-addressable facts or claims; documents can describe via document metadata how to select their contained facts or claims.

There is also, presently, a Document Services Community Group in a proposal stage. If working on these or related ideas is of interest to you, please do feel free to support the creation of the group and to join the group (https://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/#services).
