RE: [All] action item clean up and publication schedule

Hi Tadej,

One additional question: 

The text at the top of the Implementation section in the DOC file said: “The Disambiguation data category can be expressed with global rules, or locally on an individual element. The information applies to the textual content of the element. There is no inheritance. The entity type follows inheritance rules.”

The two last sentences seem to make little sense. Based on the table of section 6, I'm guessing we should remove the last sentence. Is that correct?

Hi Fredrik, 
I'll try to explain some of the rationale behind some decisions.

While there is a disambigIdent version, there is no disambigClass: the reason is that there already exist practices for representing classes as URI resources and they're generally used, this is not yet true for disambiguation identifiers: we still need to let people use non-URI identifiers, and introducing a new attribute (that is used in conjunction wtih disambigSource) made the most sense.

The rest of the comments I agree with - thanks for the thororugh read.

I think example 54
and 55 are not up to date - Tadej, coud you have a look?

Also, one question below.
2012/10/16 Fredrik Liden <>
Hi all, 
after looking at the latest Disambiguation section here are a few comments and possibly nitpicking:
* "None of exactly one of the following:" should be "None or exactly one of the following:"
* Under 6.10.2 Implementation, in list, initial cap: a disambigIdentRefPointer attribute. 
* I think in example 52 should the selector should be changed from 
   selector="/text/body/p/span[@id='dublin']" or selector="/text/body/p/*[@id='dublin']"
   ◦A disambigIdentPointer attribute...
   ◦A disambigIdentRef attribute... Would it be better to list the following in this order to be consistent with Localization Note and Terminology (Or follow the order in the latest Translation Agent Provenance, consistent one way or the other)? I found the disambigClassPointer in between the two slightly confusing especially since there is no plain disambigClass:
   ◦A disambigClassPointer attribute...
   ◦A disambigClassRef attribute...
   ◦A disambigClassRefPointer attribute...
   ◦A disambigIdent attribute...
   ◦a disambigIdentRefPointer attribute... 

   1. Initial cap A (mentioned above).
   2. Replace "◦A XYX attribute. It contains" with "◦A XYX attribute that contains" to be consistent
* Perhaps clarify "When using a disambiguation rule, the user MUST use one of the use cases for disambiguation:" 
Should it be "When using a disambiguation rule, the user MUST use at least one of the use cases for disambiguation:" to be clear. But it seems it's illustrated by the example that both can be used. Optionally, change the list format to the one used in some other data categories se bottom, that might clarify the options.
* Under LOCAL:
"The user MUST use only one of the two addressing modes for disambiguation:" 
Should this perhaps say "The user MUST use only one of the two addressing modes for "target identity" disambiguation:" to not confuse it with the above sentence.

What is the below for?


•At least one of the following:
    •Exactly one of the following:
      ◦A disambigClassRef..
      ◦A disambigClassPointer..
      ◦A disambigClassRefPointer ..
    •One or more of the following:
       •Exactly one of the following: 
                 ◦A disambigIdent attribute..
                 ◦A disambigIdentRef attribute..
                 ◦A disambigIdentPointer attribute..
                ◦A disambigIdentRefPointer attribute..
       •An optional disambigSource attribute..
•An optional disambigGranularity attribute..

Thanks Tadej. I'll update the spec later today.

I'm not sure for the values. Jirka or Felix would know for sure. Maybe it's not an issue.
