Fwd: Updated standards harmonization document for review

Dear EOWGers,

I've updated the document again, slightly, based on feedback since 
last night (thank you!). No major changes.

Thanks for the comments. Please keep them coming, as your schedules 
allow. Based on what kind of comments come in by Wednesday, I may 
open the survey to query for approval to publish as a draft for review.

Please plan on a meeting this Friday for further discussion on the 
document as needed.


- Judy

>Subject: Updated standards harmonization document for review
>Dear active EOWG'ers:
>A revised version of the standards harmonization document is now 
>available that incorporates all feedback through last Friday's EOWG 
>meeting and additional comments received online through Saturday. 
>This was a more extensive revision than planned, though much of the 
>revisions involved re-organizing existing information to get it to 
>flow better, and polishing up the wording.
>As it's coming out later than I'd hoped, I wanted to clarify what 
>Monday's timeline is about. It is _not_ a deadline for receiving all 
>comments on the draft, simply the time by which I can get changes 
>incorporated into draft translations in progress without having to 
>incur extra translation costs, and we're likely to need to do some 
>clean-up translations in any case. So comments that you're able to 
>make on Monday by around 7pm Eastern will be helpful with regard to 
>the draft translations, but there will still be a chance to comment 
>further. Send me your comments on the WBS form, or email to me and 
>the list. Please let me know if questions.
>Here's the draft; a summary of changes follows. I'd like to get some 
>comments on the updated version of the doc for a few days before 
>opening the 2nd survey which will check readiness to publish this as 
>a public draft for review.
>Summary of changes in this version:
>- shortened executive summary by 25% but kept outline of points & 
>enough context to grab the gist on the run
>- replaced example barriers and principles with paraphrased 
>descriptions of principles (tried using content from slides; too 
>truncated to make sense in this kind of document)
>- adjusted last heading, and headings in page contents
>- rechecked some uses of "take advantage of," keeping some if 
>replacing it with "benefitted from" sounded too bland
>- rechecked use of "standards" and "guidelines" throughout document
>- rechecked descriptors accompanying "policies" -- regularized some, 
>but not suitable to fully regularize as the context varies
>- rechecked use of "technical references, training curricula, 
>educational materials and other supporting resources" and the 
>shorthand "supporting resources," but it didn't work well in all 
>cases to replace with "supporting resources"; and in some cases, 
>this usage collided with use of "resources" to refer to "funds"; may 
>need to re-fix some of those
>- removed guideline version numbers where unnecessary or erroneous
>- added "over" for the "one-billion" statistic, and added ref; and 
>removed 28% reference
>- rechecked sequence of "fragmentation" points, and re-aligned 
>sequence between exec summ and full fragmentation section
>- rechecked sequence of "harmonization" points, rebuilt rationales, 
>and re-aligned sequence between exec summ and full harmonization section
>- rolled in edits from Shawn's html revision, where not otherwise 
>explained in reply email to that document
>- extensively revised the "using resources" section, breaking it up 
>into more H3's, and breaking out the reference links into a separate 
>list, un-bulleting descriptions of the steps.
>- miscellaneous minor copy-edits
>Many thanks,
>- Judy
