RE: [EMOXG] Writing the final report, and last phone meetings

Dear Marc and All,

You have done a very good editing work with the report. It is actually more than a skeleton! 
Regarding the content, I can write the Modality section (2.3.2) as you suggest. In case I can help adding some info regarding the use of Qnames as an alternative to "sets".
I expexct to attend both phone meetings.

>* commit yourself to a list of sections by Wednesday 5 Nov;
>* participate in the phone meeting on Thursday 6 Nov (see below);
>* provide a *publication-quality* XHTML contribution in the 
>format used 
>in the draft document, by Wednesday 12 Nov;
>* participate in the phone meeting on Thursday 13 Nov (see below);
>* help cross-read and homogenise until 20 Nov, the publication date.
>This leaves only 10 days for individual contributions. However, for
