Subject: yet a further other revision of the URI charter (proposed)


Per Larry's request, Ron and I have sat down and had another
bash at the charter revision, incorporating as many of Roy's 
suggestions as possible.

This is the version that will be discussed in tomorrow's URI
session.

I will send, in the next message, an annotated version that
includes some _agenda_ items that we think are necessary
in order to achieve the milestones.

Cheers,
Leslie.

============


The URI-WG is chartered to define a set of standards for the encoding
of system-independent resource identification, description, and
location information for the use of Internet information services.

The working group is expected to produce a set of documents that
identify the requirements for system-independent resource identification,
description and location; define the architectural components necessary
to perform those tasks; and specify standard interfaces for those
components.  The group will also produce informational documents on the 
Uniform Resource Identification architecture, which will describe the roles of 
various forms of URI and will offer quidance to the group when other forms of 
URI are suggested during the lifetime of the working group.

These documents will provide a framework that allows Internet users,
applications, and services to access, describe, and uniquely identify
Internet resources, all with appropriate levels of security.  Informational
RFCs will remain as guidelines, both for the standardization of specific
URI proposals as well as the development of new URI genres (UR?) after
the lifetime of this working group.
