Some notes on renaming in the hope that it's of use:

"Document UX" might be the Web version of this? I was really pleased to
see the level of attention the document got at the recent CSS F2F, and
part of that is because of the prominence of "Layout and Styling", so
overall I'l be happy to keep the current name.

I really don't like the term Semantics if content markup is not
included, because that carries semantics too, and a big problem in book
publishing (as I see it) today is the "closed book" model.

Of course, Cataloguing would sound like we're competing with OCLC, BL,
LoC etc., which isn't really the case (there's some overlap with the
beyond FRBR work at LoC though).

Maybe "Description Formats" if we don't like Metadata?

The "E" in STEM seems to be present or not present depending on who you
ask; I suspect this is because journals and documents targeted at
educators are often handled by a different division in large publishers,
and the ST and M already include A for Academic.
