Hi Ivan,

Thank you for detecting incoherence in group names. Ill fix that.

MOU:
Im not a legal expert and this has not yet been raised among us in the PSC, but in the existing context of the merge, isnt the Publishing Steering Committee in position to take this kind of decision?
If not, is the Publishing Business Group in capacity ? You seem to be uncertain on this too.

SOW:
This technical question pertains to the dev integration.
DAISY proposal is about an "HTML checker prototype" in phase 3 and the "Integration of the Nu HTML Checker"  in phase 4.
I think prototyping is precisely to figure out how this will be done more precisely. There is still some place for research.
Nonetheless, Ill ask to DAISY developers if they have any idea on this.

Thanks Luc.

Specific remarks.

MOU
------
- I am not sure what the role of W3C, the groups, committees are from a juridical point of view. The text says it is "Between The Publishing Steering Committee & The DAISY Consortium"
- The Steering Committee does not have any real standing (consider the separate discussion, too), so I would think it should be between the Business Group and Daisy.
- Also, should it say "W3C Business Group & Daisy"? We may have to check this with Wendy Steltzer
- B.t.w., the 1st line in "Objective" says "Publishing Working Group", which is certainly wrong. It should be the Steering Committee if we keep to what we have now, or the Business group (or W3C Publishing Business Group) depending on my previous remark.
- The text also includes "Publishing Steering Group" (in 3.2) which is definitely wrong, too

Work Statement


This is something to be checked (and is a minor issue): the text refers to the Nu HTML checker. Isn't it better to refer explicitly to validator.w3.org/nu?<http://validator.w3.org/nu?> The only reason I am saying is that, afaik, the w3c version takes care of incorporating newer W3C issues (like values accepted by ARIA, things like that) then the 'core' Nu HTML one. But this should be checked.
