In any case, I think we're past the stage of debating
the proposals themselves. There are two change proposals,
one which reinstates DOCTYPE based versioning, and one
that doesn't. 

I'll stop posting email which isn't supplying new information;
I thought the accessibility regulation case was new, but
the XML editor case wasn't.

If you have some friendly amendment to my change proposal
you'd like to suggest, that could be a topic for discussion,
but let's not rehash all the old arguments?

Sorry,

Larry

Sam, I'm curious. Why did the ATOMPUB WG choose not to have a version

identifier? Was there any archived discussion of this which you could

point us to?

Regards,
Maciej
