Hi Erik!

I don't think we've got them in Advanced, either, yet

Because nobody proposed them! As we move forward with testing
there may be features which we indeed realise are well supported,
but are not in our Basic document, and indeed as state of the art
moves it may make the whole of Advanced, Basic .. 

Of course our having identified each pattern with a URI, means you 
are at liberty to build your own collection of pwtterns, 
e.g. publish a set of patterns used in Epicor schemas, 
or which you know to work "well" with a given toolkit.

Note, we'll formally process all comments on this document sent
during our Last Call period to the comments list:
