Paul and I will need to agree on this, but I have no strong objection to splitting the draft as you describe. I think it is nice to have things together so that people can implement from fewer documents, but I can certainly see the logic of your position. > I think that we need to look > carefully at what in the proposed syntax is really generic URN sytnax and > what is substructure that is specific to the proposed DNS scheme. In conversations with Dan LaLiberte and Michael Shapiro about the path scheme, they have voiced similar concerns. This was something I have thought about a bit more since then. I really want to talk with Roy Fielding and Peter Deutsch to get some contrasting views on the syntax before we go off and write the first of the 3 drafts that would replace this one. > Since as I understand it this is on the agenda for the upcoming IETF > meeting, I would strongly urge the authors to try to separate out the > issues into separate documents; I think that this will lead to a much > better-focused discussion and more rapid progress. During the presentation I can try to present the three aspects seperately. It may also be possible to try and split the Q&A session into parts - but that is Larry's call to make. I don't think that we will have revised documents by that time. For one thing, I doubt that I will get a chance for much feedback from Roy and Peter before then. For the second - I would like to collect more comments on the existing draft before updating it or replacing it. -- Ron Daniel Jr. email: firstname.lastname@example.org Advanced Computing Lab voice: (505) 665-0597 MS B-287 TA-3 Bldg. 2011 fax: (505) 665-4939 Los Alamos National Lab http://www.acl.lanl.gov/~rdaniel/ Los Alamos, NM, 87545 tautology: "Conformity is very popular"
