[Publication] 6 Dec 2002 Editor's Draft of Architecture of the WWW


I've published the 6 Dec 2002 Editor's Draft [1] of the
Arch Doc, which incorporates some discussion (though no
new principles) from the TAG's 18 Nov face-to-face meeting.
The list of changes is available as HTML [2] and as
text below.

This draft has not been reviewed by anyone.

Thank you,

  - Ian

   * 1.3 Summary of terms. Moved intro paragraph to
     description of design choices in new 6.1. Also,
     added links from category terms to descriptions
     in 6.1.
   * 2.1.1 Identity questions. New section based on
     text from DC and material from deleted 2.5. I did
     not incorporate all of DC's text about comparing
     URIs while we wait for TB's finding on
   * 2.2.1 Comparing identifiers: After good practice
     note, added two paragraphs from DC material.
   * Deleted old section 2.2.5 per 18 Nov 2002 ftf
     meeting. Moved example to a paragraph of 2.2.4
     starting "Ambiguous descriptions of what a URI
     identifies increase the likelihood that two
     parties will think the same URI identifies
     different resources". Edited this paragraph to
     try to be clearer about "meaning by following
     specifications" v. "meaning through use" (which
     is not authoritative). Per comments from TB.
   * 2.2.5 Persistence: This section seemed different
     enough from preceding paragraphs that it deserved
     its own subsection, even if there's no principle
   * Deleted old section 2.5 ("Some generalities about
     URIs"); some material moved to 2.1.1.
   * 3.3.2 XML Namespaces and Namespace Documents: New
     section based on text from NW (with his
     corrections and a few minor changes). Moved
     namespaceDocument-8 issue placeholder here.
   * 6. Glossary: Divided in two: category
     descriptions (based on comment by David Orchard
     at 18 Nov 2002 ftf meeting) and technical terms.
   * 7.2 Non-Normative References:
        + Added citation of "Guidelines For The Use of
	 XML in IETF Protocols." Referred to from
	 3.3.1 "When to use XML." Per comments from
        + Per comment from Misha Wolf, changed "URI's"
	 to "URIs" in [COOL]
        + Added OWL10 and DAMLOIL, referred to from
