In response to the word “MAY” in the definition of WP, I’m trying to understand the use cases for a W3C specification for any WP that does not present using OWP.

Why would this not be “is” (to affirm that what we are doing is around OWP, while leaving open a door for non OWP) or “must” (closing the door for anything not OWP)?

The DPUB IG proposed a definition of Web Publications [1, 2]

Here are the short definitions. Please see [1] for the longer definition.

•  A Web Publication (WP) is a collection of one or more constituent resources, organized together in a uniquely identifiable grouping that may be presented using standard Open Web Platform technologies.
•  A Packaged Web Publication (PWP) is a Web Publication<https://www.w3.org/TR/pwp/#dfn-web-publication> whose constituent resources are combined into a single distributable file, using some standard packaging format.
•  In this document, manifest refers to an abstract means to contain information necessary to the proper management, rendering, and so on, of a publication. This is opposed to metadata that contains information on the content of the publication like author, publication date, and so on. The precise format of how such a manifest is stored is not considered in this document.

If you are happy with these definitions, a simple +1 vote is sufficient. If you are not, please vote -1 and propose revisions.

Thank you,
