Re: 48-Hour Call for Consensus (CfC): Publish "ARIA D-Pub Roles" FPWD

I can respond to the following now:

dpub-toc: directory maps to a list in all the platforms. One would expect
that lists can appear throughout a book. If I wanted to go to THE table of
contents it would not work. There is no distinction. I could see us
subclassing directory however.

dpub-part: is a name, apparently well known in the publication space. I
will let Tzviya respond to that.

bibliography is not abbreviated.  However, we can look at the
abbreviations. I can see where changing qna to questionsandanswers may get
pushback as q and a are pretty well understood.

            Roles" FPWD

I support the FPWD with these comments/issues.

1. Please link all the ISSUES notes to their respective issues.

2. dpub-toc is unnecessary. Use the general ARIA 1.0 role "directory" whose
description is "Authors should use this role for a static table of
contents, whether linked or unlinked. This includes tables of contents
built with lists, including nested lists."

3. Role name abbreviation is still very inconsistent. "bibliography",
"biblioref", "biblioterm", "qna"... Please note that ARIA does not
abbreviate role names (except for one oversight, "img")

4. "dpub-part" is still too generic a name, and the previously filed
issue/bug is not mentioned.

5. "dpub-noteref" and "dpub-glossref" are unnecessary. These are simple
links. There is no need for another role.

Most of this and other feedback was previously provided but does not appear
to be addressed or mentioned.
