Re: Obsolescence notices on old specifications, again

I'm sorry, but for some, saying DOM2 (a REC) = DOM4 (a WIP), is the same as
saying DOM2 is a WIP. This is because the former can be read as saying that
the normative content of DOM2 is now replaced with DOM4.

I'm not sure what you mean by "[DOM2] is a work on which progress has
stopped". DOM2 is a REC, and is only subject to errata [1] and rescinding


I'm not sure where the proposed obsolescence message falls in terms of [1]
or [2]. Perhaps you could clarify, since presumably the process document
will apply to any proposed change.
