I just want to clarify that the point of providing that presentation wasn’t to suggest that the archivable version of a PWP be PDF/A…

Instead it was to say, as Tim did in the minutes, that a LOT OF TIME was spent with archivists around the world over the last 10+ years of PDF/A to understand their requirements for archiving digital content (esp documents).  So starting with the learnings there would get you a big leg up w/o having to reinvent the wheel of asking the same questions over again.

As we have seen in the PWP vs. EPUB discussions for accessibility – while the EPUB community may well want to insist(?) on accessibility of every document published in that format – the PWP community isn’t thinking as rigidly.  Archiving is similar.  For EPUB, it may well be that “all resources have to be embedded in every document” but for PWP that’s simply not the case.  We have well spelled out use cases for non-inclusion.  So requiring it for every PWP isn’t an option.   But for an archival PWP – most certainly.

You also need to ensure that you have standard models for annotations (being worked on in another group, though not specific to PWP – so have to watch that space), metadata (on the roadmap but not under active work), etc.  And more.  Every feature & aspect of a PWP – which we don’t fully know yet either – needs to be evaluated for longevity/archivability.
