My one question/point of clarification is with “manifest refers to an abstract means to contain information necessary to the proper management, rendering, and so on, of a publication.”
I am just worried about “rendering” is such a loaded word and for accessibility there may be need for alternative rendering which is what a reading system or UA may offer so I am just concerned with what exactly we were thinking here.

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,
