Dear www-tag,

This is a summary of the TAG's activity from 9 April 2004 (end
date of the previous summary [1]) to 10 May 2004.

The TAG held three teleconferences during this period. Summaries
of those meetings are linked from the TAG home page [2].

  The TAG continues to process Last Call comments on the
  Architecture Document.
  The Editor made available the 7 May and 10 May 2004 Editor's 
  Drafts, which take into account TAG decisions from the 
  past couple of months as well as editorial suggestions. The
  10 May draft is available at:

2) Issues

  The TAG did not accept, decide, or discuss any general
  issues during this period.

4) Communication

  The TAG continued to discuss architectural considerations
  around Internet top level domains (TLDs), specifically the
  proposed TLDs ".mobi" and ".xxx".

  The TAG also responded positively to an update from the
  Web Services Description Working Group about the inclusion
  of a "safety" property in WSDL 2.0, in response to TAG
  issue whenToUseGet-7 [1]. The TAG expects to continue to
  liaise with the WSD WG on this matter.

  other general issues.

  May 2004 Advisory Committee meeting where they will
  present an update of the TAG's work.
