As alluded to in the 7 Feb telecon, the layering document is likely to
become a working note (?) of the WG.  My understanding is that this status
will make it a semi-official statement of the working group's collective

I'm not sure how much heat and/or light is required before this can happen,
but the obvious time for WG members to contribute is before or during the
21 Feb telecon (preferably before).   So, if you have comments, criticisms,
or corrections, please voice them soon.  

A slightly-updated version of the document is now available at


I expect this URL to remain until the document becomes finalized.  It can
be referenced from, for example, the WebOnt WG page.

Both Dieter and I consider this version of the document to be relatively
stable, and a relatively final version of our thoughts and the discussion
at the first face-to-face.

The *next* step, of course, is to decide on which layering approach to use.
I am delaying throwing out the ceremonial grenade for this next step until
the current document has been at least somewhat assimilated.  However, if
you can't wait, don't let my (unusual) reticence dissuade you.  :-)
