[metadataInURI-31] Near Final Draft of The Use of Metadata In URIs

On the TAG telconferece of 14 Nov. 2006 it was agreed that I would make 
one more revision to section 2.8 on Confusing or malicious metadata in the 
draft TAG finding on The Use of Metadata In URIs.  That work is done, and 
I am pleased to make available what I hope is a nearly final draft of this 
finding [2,3].  From the status section:

"This version reflects proposed resolutions to all issues that the editors 
expect to address prior to publication as a TAG finding. Although a few 
revisions in response to recent comments are included throughout the 
finding, the only major changes are in the section 2.8 Confusing or 
malicious metadata, which has been changed to reflect the direction 
suggested during the TAG's Teleconference of 14 November 2006. The Good 
Practice Note on use of operating system filenames has also been revised 
to match the text suggested during that teleconference. "

For the previous draft, we identified Ed and Dan as reviewers, so I expect 
that at least they will want to take a look before we formally approve.

Vincent:  unless Ed, Dan or others raise substantial concerns, I don't 
think we'll need much time for discussion at the F2F, but we should 
probably reserve a few minutes for a formal vote to publish, and to make 
sure we schedule the necessary changes to the status section, stylesheets, 
etc.  for an approved finding. 

BTW: Norm, would you mind taking a quick look at the biblio and making 
sure I've used the xmlspec markup and associated punctuation in the 
intended manner?  Many thanks.
