   timbl: Chris took on the task of reviewing the Charmod spec; see
   [21]email from CL.

     [21] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/tag/2004Mar/0041.html

   Chris: I am part way through. We should ask for a week's extention.

   Stuart: I'll ask for a 2 week extension.

   DanC_: (I owe a review too. sorry, I'm running late)

   Chris: I have found one new issue -- mailed just before this meeting

   timbl: ACTION Stuart: Negotiate an extension of ideally 2 weeks with
   I18N WG for the review of CharMod.

   Chris: (the new issue - On the other hand, I worry that this might
   encourage people to encode pi or symbol fonts on the ascii range,
   which is worse than using the PUA! The spec could explicitly discuss
   this case.

    2.2.2 Status report regarding TAG's URI/IRI issues

     * [22]URIEquivalence-15
     * [23]IRIEverywhere-27

     [23] http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/issues.html#IRIEverwhere-27

   Stuart: In the meeting that Chris and I attended, we asked Martin to
   report back on their publishing schedules for the IRI draft.

   Chris: I had thought that they are in RFC queue - but RFC2396 bis is
   not in last call yet.

   Roy: RFC2396 bis is still in WG not yet LC or RFC.

   DanC_: (RFC2396bis last call will be 4 weeks, rather than 2, since
   there's no WG. I think.)

   timbl: ... The IRI draft could go to RFC with a prointer to the RFC
   stage with normative reference to 2496bis, with instructions to the
   RFC editor top update teh pointer iff the RFC2396bis spec coems

   DanC_: hmm... IRI is in the IETF standards process? I despair of being
   able to track this stuff.

   Timbl Notes that that is an interesting procedure.

   Roy: It wouldn't become an RFC spec until the normative refs all
   become RFCs.

   Chris: please note my charmod review-in-progress also halt at
   precisely the IRI issue

   Zakim: Chris, you wanted to talk about IRI and to say what I said in

   DanC: This may delay the arch doc past the end of the year, (which was
   the subject of a bet and a dinner!)

   Chris: Many specs have IRIs in already.

   DanC: The fundamentals issue should be of stuff which is not at risk.

   DanC_: I'm surprised. hmm... gotta study further to see if I find it

   Chris: 7 Character Encoding in URI References

   Chris: IRI also normative in XMLNamespace 1.1 for example

   Stuart: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2003/lc1209/webarchWithIssues.html

   Chris: the stuff in section 7 is already widely deployed. eg IE6 (5,
   4) and Google use this all the time

  2.3 Update on namespaceDocument-8

     * [24]namespaceDocument-8
         1. Review finding outline from PC

     [30] http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2003/lc1209/concerning.html

   timbl: DanC: We just pasted the comments into the relevant parts of
   the spec. Ian did the difficult bit of linking the issue to the


   timbl: DanC: It would be nice to be able to group these if they are
   one comment. I have not found a lot of inspiration as to what to do

   timbl: Chris: I volunteer to look at 4 Data Formats

   DanC_: yes, timbl, do look at RFC2396bis

   * Norm apologizes. Must leave at 16:00 (in 12 min)

     [31] http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2003/lc1209/issues.html#pps1

   Chris: ok so he is saying that the weather page does not own the
   weather.to which we say, correct, but they own their report on the
   weather. It seems easy to answer - he is just confused between the
   weather and the report

   SW: We talk about URIs being owned, and resources, and making an

   timbl: ... we talk about authority and ownership and we are not very
   clear with respect to URIs or resources

   Zakim: Chris, you wanted to say that

   Zakim: DanC_, you wanted to say well, we gave it a try, but maybe this
   isn't good use of our time after all... I'm ok to adjourn, despite my
   bet with PaulC

   Chris: 'ownership' also needs to discuss syndication, and syndicated
   data as (part of) a resource

   I suggest the only way to make this clearer would be a formal

   Stuart: We will be addressing web arch last call comments. I will need
   input for next week's agenda.

   Stuart will review the agenda of next week on Thursday.

   TimBL: Doesn't work for me.
