I'd like to propose the following specific changes to address
issue-dbooth-3 (ambiguity).

1. We adopt the 3-character normative change described in

2. I write a separate Working Group Note that defines the notion of
"complete GRDDL result", which would be referenced from the GRDDL spec.
GRDDL-aware agents would NOT be required to implement this. 
A draft of this Note is currently available at:

3. In conjunction with this Note, we adopt the following two changes to
the GRDDL spec:

a. To enable complete GRDDL results to be determined when namespace or
profile documents are used, add the following sentence to the end of the
Faithful Renditions section:
Furthermore, by serving a representation of a namespace or profile
document that indicates any namespace or profile transformations, the
author of that document states that every representation that indicates
any namespace or profile transformations indicates the same set of
namespace or profile transformations.

b. In sec 7 (GRDDL-aware agents), before the example, add:
Determining Complete GRDDL Results

In some cases, the person or application making use of a GRDDL-aware
agent may wish to know whether the GRDDL results obtained from an XML
document are known to constitute all of the GRDDL results that the
document was intended to denote.  For this reason, a companion Working
Group Note[@@ref@@] defines the notion of <i>complete GRDDL results</b>
and describes how they can be determined.  A GRDDL-aware agent is NOT
required to compute complete GRDDL results, 

These changes are an attempt to:

 - satisfactorily address issue-dbooth-3,

 - while minimizing the burden on the working group.

Would you please add this to Wednesday's agenda?
