Hi Chuck

Opposite you I prefer definition A in “informative, non-normative and
normative”  as I think it is clearer and more straight forward, I don’t
understand the need for the word “describing”

If I was a translator, I think I would appreciate

        Assistive Technology: definition A slightly more than definition B.

         Informative: definition B more than A.

         Non-normative: definition B more than A, but neither really works
for me.

         Normative:  definition B more than A.

I think my slight problem with the definitions of Non-Normative is that, in
an alphabetical English listing it appears before Normative which it should
(in my opinion) follow (in a strictly narrative sense).

Anyway, those are my votes.

Dear EOWG members,

In the teleconference of May 6 we made a good progress in perfecting the
lexicon entry descriptions. There were only four descriptions without a
clear consensus of the EOWG-group.
These four are on top of the list in the attached document and has two
alternative descriptions. Although the differences are minor we want to have
your final word on that.

We hope to have some time in tomorrows call to get this ready. Please read
the stuff.
